Differentiate Lesson Content with ChatGPT

Learn effective prompts for creating lesson outlines and materials, and then differentiating those resources for reading level and language proficiency.

Once students are old enough to be reading to learn, a common challenge for educators is making lesson plans accessible to everyone in the classroom. Often, there will be situations where students can engage with the content being taught, but due to being at a lower reading and writing level, or having challenges with processing texts, they fall behind for reasons not connected to the actual curriculum being taught.

Generative AI tools like ChatGPT are great for taking texts and converting them at different reading levels to create a more equitable classroom. ChatGPT can also be used to translate texts into other languages, making content more accessible to ELL students in the classroom.

This tutorial will explore how to responsibly create learning resources that are differentiated for reading level and language. There will be example prompts and shortened versions of the generated text that will give an idea of how the answers were structured.
