One of the most effective methods for engaging students is to relate subject matter to learners′ interests and experiences. The challenge many secondary teachers face is how to accomplish this goal across an increasingly diverse student body. In this field-tested resource, Kathleen Kryza, S. Joy Stephens, and Alicia Duncan guide educators toward achieving this objective by presenting differentiated lessons that simultaneously engage and inspire students.

Offering easy-to-implement strategies for differentiated lessons, this research-based book also provides in-depth model lessons and rubrics in content areas to inspire learning. The end result is engaging and meaningful instruction that stirs students to construct their own approach to learning by applying their experiences to relevant subject matter. Readers will also benefit from:
