About the eBook

"Translates the need for differentiation into a format that breaks down the ′why′ into the ′how.′ By using conversations between real teachers and a coach as they undergo the endeavor of putting differentiation into practice, the authors have provided the means for practitioners to see firsthand how theory can become reality."
—Jason Thompson, Fifth-Grade Teacher
Cobleskill-Richmondville Central School District, NY

"This book has a great variety of lessons contributed by teachers—very well laid out and easy to follow. The book provides good examples of using differentiation across subject areas."
—Wendy Rader, Kindergarten Teacher
Union County Public Schools, Charlotte, NC

Watch what happens when educators put differentiation to work in real classrooms!

Every student has unique learning styles, interests, and preferences. By differentiating instruction, teachers can reach all the students in their classroom, from struggling students to the gifted.
