“Since starting Digitability, two of my students' communication skills have improved. Whenever the students volunteer to direct a lesson activity, they use a clearer tone of voice. Using Digitability is a great tool for generalizing communication skills practice from the classroom to inquiring about open job positions (CBI trips to shopping malls/retail stores).”

- Guy Thielman (PACE Classroom), Southwest Career & Technical Academy, Clark County School District (Las Vegas, NV)

Activating Prior Knowledge in the Warm Up

During the Warm Up, it is important that teachers ask multiple questions, engage multiple students, and access the necessary prior knowledge from previous lessons and activities. A strong and engaging Warm Up sets the tone for the lesson and primes students to participate for the duration of class.

Ways to Differentiate

Using Digitability's pre-made, differentiated resources, teachers can utilize resources from Tier 1, 2, or 3 to engage their students in portions of the lesson that access prior knowledge.
