The first in a series of ASCD books takes you deeper into the practice of differentiation with complete differentiated units of study in five core subjects. Each unit includes lesson plans, worksheets, assignments, rubrics, and other tools and strategies for teaching mixed-ability groups.
Clear steps and timelines help you plan your use of instructional processes such as flexible grouping, tiered assignments, and scaffolding. Teacher comments throughout the units guide you in how to present material, focus on learning goals, and vary the lessons for struggling, grade-level, and advanced students. Use these units as templates to design your own differentiated curriculum, or adapt the lessons and activities to units you’re already teaching in other subjects and grade levels.
