Differentiated/Accommodations/Modifications/Increase in Rigor To help meet the needs of all learners, learning differences,
cultural and language differences, etc.

This lesson incorporates all cultures and allows for students to increase their own rigor. The only obstacle I foresee is a
possible language barrier. If a student cannot speak English at all, I will provide intensive scaffolding to insure their success.
