Differentiation: From Planning to Practice, Grades 6-12

Stenhouse Publishers
Most educators want to provide appropriate instruction for the diverse learning needs of their students, however moving from theory to practice can stymie both novice and experienced teachers. The author shows middle- and secondary-level teachers how to plan a differentiated lesson from start to finish, detailing the steps to take before, during, and after to deepen connections for students. At each stage, the book offers tested strategies and reflective advice about reaching a wide range of learners within the same classroom. Annotated models of effective differentiated instruction, including tiering, flexible groupings, and adjustments based on formative assessments, are included. Through interdisciplinary examples, these processes can be extended to any subject. Contents include Foreword (Carol Ann Tomlinson) and five chapters: (1) Developing a Common Frame of Reference; (2) A Walk-Through of a Differentiated Lesson; (3) Helpful Structures and Strategies for the Differentiated Class; (4) Cognitive Structures and Tips That Help Us Differentiate; and (5) Twelve Samples of Differentiated Learning Experiences from Multiple Subjects. The book concludes with A Final Word: Three Tips to Begin the Journey, recommended resources, an appendix and references. An index is included.
