Description

Description

How to Differentiate Learning provides guidance for schools and districts to start or improve the effort to differentiate instruction. Based on what educators know about the differences among children they teach, and based on what we know of brain research, teachers must find and embrace ways to differentiate curriculum, assessment and entry points to understanding in order to make all students successful. This book provides background from experts and clarifies what is not differentiation as well as what is. It offers ways for teachers to think about student interests and learning profiles and also looks at varied ways to approach instructional planning for differentiated learning.
