Because young school children have such a wide range of interests, abilities, and learning styles, there's always the danger of losing some with a "one-size-fits-all" curriculum. But you can ensure all students are learning with this guide to differentiation.
The guide features entire instructional units for science, social studies, math, and language arts. Each unit is complete with standards and learning outcomes, lesson plans, worksheets, learning contracts, assessments, and other materials for classroom instruction. Comments from the teachers who created these lessons help you decide differentiation strategies based on students’ varied interests, strengths, and needs.
Plus, timelines and pacing tips help you implement differentiation in your classroom all year long. Use these units as templates to design your own differentiated curriculum for virtually any subject and grade level.
