Educating Everybody's Children: Diverse Teaching Strategies for Diverse Learners, Revised and Expanded 2nd Edition
Cole, Robert W.
Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
Since its first publication in 1995, hundreds of thousands of teachers in every grade and subject have benefited from this landmark guide on how to teach students from economically, ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse groups. Now at last, this all-new and expanded edition--nearly twice the size of the original--explains how these universal teaching practices have withstood the test of time and become key factors in bridging achievement gaps. Explore more than 100 research-backed, teacher-tested strategies that help you: (1) Capitalize on students' strengths; (2) Match instructional methods to students' instructional needs; (3) Increase interest, motivation, and engagement; (4) Create varied learning configurations; and (5) Make connections for understanding. Included are dozens of subject-specific strategies for math, science, reading, writing, and social studies. Plus, strategies for increasing the achievement of immigrant and refugee children. All strategies are illustrated with classroom examples so you can apply them immediately. And extensive resource lists help you explore each strategy further in your self-help learning or collaborative learning teams.
