As teachers undertake the transition to differentiating instruction (DI), they're going to have lots of questions about how to discover their students' learning needs and plan appropriate instruction. That's why every successful implementation of DI needs this practical resource. Inside the three-ring binder are 60 tools that can be used in every grade and subject, designed to help teachers reach higher levels of expertise with differentiation. By using the tools in teacher workshops and team meetings, and making them available for teachers to refer to in their classrooms, you support teachers throughout the critical stages of implementing DI.
Tools are organized around the key principles of effective differentiation:
Included with the tools are more than 40 samples that show teachers how to use the tools in various grade levels (primary through high school) and subject areas, so they get a clear idea of how to make DI an everyday reality in their classrooms.
