Teach Me, Teach My Brain: A Call for Differentiated Classrooms.
Tomlinson, Carol Ann; Kalbfleisch, M. Layne
Educational Leadership, v56 n3 p52-55 Nov 1998
Three brain-research principles--emotional safety, appropriate challenge, and self-constructed meaning--find a one-size-fits-all approach to classroom teaching ineffective for most students. A child needing an open learning environment will feel intimidated by a controlling teacher. Differentiated classrooms are responsive to students' varying readiness levels, interests, and learning profiles. (14 references) (MLH)
