Differentiation how do you
plan to give more support?
How do you plan to challenge
the more able learners?
Adapted Worksheets could be
provided, with different degrees of
difficulty, for learners who find
these concepts challenging / easy
to grasp.
Appoint group leaders to mentor
less confident learners
Learners who find these concepts
easy to grasp may be given an
additional worksheet requiring
calculations and diagrams to link
elasticity and a firms profits. This
would also provide a good link to
material which will be covered in
