students will have to
remember what fair
use was in order to
find it in their paper,
they will need to be
able to categorize
their citations into two
groups, one that is
cited correctly and the
other one which is
not, they will then
have to apply what
they learned by
sorting out their
citations and
analyzing how many
were cited correctly
and how many were
not, they will then be
evaluated by the
teacher to see if they
correctly identified
and fixed the
incorrect citations.

older children,

have to describe and

Learning Disabilities EEOs

The teacher can

have students
create a
presentation on a
given topic, using
any technology
they wanted (ex.

technology they
may have for their
tablets, etc.) by
doing this those
students can learn
more about how to
use the technology
they have to
better suit them in
the future, on
assignments or in
future education.

Physical Disabilities
Gifted/ Talented

Students could have

to come up with a
presentation on the
use of fair use and
copyright but they
would have to
present it in a
different way than
just a PowerPoint or
Prezi. They could
use one of the
methods but they
would have to come
up with another way
to present the
information (ex. act
in a video, create an
animation, etc.)

In my matrix I tried to make it about learning about fair use and copyright, as well as, just incorporating it into the
everyday activities the students would be doing. I tried to mix it up so they learn about fair use and copyright and
then they apply it so they can see and understand how to properly do it and the actions that could follow if you dont
use fair use or copyrights correctly. I felt like I used remember and understand a lot but I think that is the core of the

knowledge being presented if you remember what was taught about fair use and copyright and understand how to
use it then you will be good to go, it is something that needs to be understood and remembered at all times, so I
tried to make that a point in my matrix that remembering and understanding was very important to this concept.
For the differentiation I tried to adapt it to create situations that would be helpful to the students involved and not
just an extra activity they had to do, I tried to adapt it and create realistic expectations that would produce quality
learning experience for those different types of children. I do realize this would take more time on my part or on
another helping professionals part but I do think it is important for those students to have those experiences and I
also think any of the activities presented in the matrix could be adapted to any kind of student, so everyone gets
something out of the learning objectives.
