Tiering A tiered lesson is designed for all students to address the same academic standard or concept, but at varying levels of depth, complexity, or structure. Tiered lessons allow for several pathways for students to arrive at an essential understanding based on the student's readiness (Adams and Pierce, 2006).
Tiering step by step 1) identify teaching standard 2) identify big idea/essential understanding/key concept 3) develop a lesson 4) identify necessary background 5) determine what element of the lesson you will tier 6) determine student readiness 7) determine how many tiers you will need 8) determine appropriate assessment
