Some children learn easily, while others struggle. How can teachers make sure that every child has opportunities to develop his or her talents? The answer is differentiation: changing the pace, level, or kind of instruction in response to learners' needs, styles, and/or interests. This guide presents strategies for any teacher faced with a spectrum of student needs and styles (differentiating discussions, creating tiered assignments, matrix plans for designing curriculum units, process skills, and evidence of learning). Chapters focus on evaluation in a differentiated classroom and how to manage both behavior and work tasks. Any curriculum can be differentiated-even a standard or mandated curriculum. Drawing on experts in the field and her own experience in the classroom, the author explains how to differentiate instruction in a wide variety of scenarios to provide variety and challenge in how teachers teach and in how students learn. Templates and forms simplify planning; examples illustrate differentiation in many content areas. Includes reproducible handout masters.Heacox, Diane is the author of 'Differentiating Instruction in the Regular Classroom How to Reach and Teach All Learners, Grades 3-12' with ISBN 9781575421056 and ISBN 1575421054.
