Wikipedia has a sister site called http://simple.wikipedia.org. I discovered it only recently and it’s a very useful differentiation tool for those students who insist on using Wikipedia as their first port of call when researching homework etc on the net but may struggle with the content. It still remains to be said that students should be reminded to always compare resources and to evaluate the content.
I have shown an example (side by side) but please feel free to click on the link and trial it with a subject matter that students would find the benefits.
More differentiation resources:
