About the eBook

"Presents an abundance of effective strategies for adapting instruction such that children with disabilities, those who exhibit behavioral or motivational problems, or those who speak a language different from English will succeed in every classroom. If American schools are truly to educate all children well, then all teachers need to use these powerful ideas for differentiating instruction effectively. This text provides the tool kit every elementary teacher needs to achieve this goal."
—Richard Allington, Professor of Education

  • A broad spectrum of alternative instructional strategies for all learners, including fostering parental involvement, multi-tiered instruction, peer learning models, and universal design for learning
  • Effective approaches for fostering student success before a child is referred to special education
  • Practices and programs that address the needs of at-risk populations, including English language learners, children living in poverty, and learners with disabilities
  • Specific interventions and positive support for learners with behavioral challenges
