Do not worry- I am a middle school teacher and I differentiate! You describe worrying about providing the right amount of support without enabling students. Many days, I face a similar dilemma. High schools generally offer less accommodations than the middle school at which I work. As my first eighth graders graduate this year, I am learning just how few accommodations my students will receive in high school. Luckily, many of my students have found programs that suit their needs. However, I worry about those that still need significant teacher prompting and support. Have I created this dependency or is it an honest need? I appreciate your assertion to think about how to phase out new accommodations. I will be keeping this in the forefront of my thoughts to guide my decision-making process.
