Here's a way to teach the same grade-level content to students with varying reading skills! The same information is written at three different levels: below grade level, at grade level, and above grade level. All the students in your class can read the passage and have the information they need to respond to the same six questions that evaluate their comprehension of the subject matter. The curriculum topics cover science, geography, history, and language arts. The reading passages are correlated to the Common Core State Standards, and the reading levels are calculated according to the Flesch-Kincaid Readability Formula.

The idea is excellent but each supposedly differentiated text is far too much the same. The lower group and top group are almost identical. Leaving one or two words out or adding in a word or simply altering the order of the words is not differentiating.
