I too am am middle school teacher and I differentiate also so don't worry. I enjoyed reading your post. As a special educator I find myself relating my own experiences with my children to my students as well. I am often reminded that I should not over accommodate for my students but until reading your post I did not understand why. As a sixth grade math teacher a large number of my students come in without the basic skills necessary to be successful with the curriculum. For instance, because a large number of my students have difficulty with multiplication fluency and division I normally recommend a calculator so that they can still be on pace with the general education classes. Thanks for helping me to realize that when offering an accommodation we should have a plan in place so that each student can learn to be successful with or without the support.
