Making Differentiation a Habit +++ BEST SELLER
How to Ensure Success in Academically Diverse Classrooms
If you're a teacher with an academically diverse classroom (and what classrooms aren't today?), you need this resource. Framed around the critical elements for success in today's classrooms, Making Differentiation a Habit gives educators specific, user-friendly tools to optimize teaching, learning, and assessment.
Following on the heels of Diane Heacox's best-selling teacher resource, Differentiating Instruction in the Regular Classroom, this book offers new ideas, fresh perspectives, and additional research-based strategies to help teachers seamlessly integrate differentiation practices into their daily routines.
With Making Differentiation a Habit you get all this and more:
Cutting-edge research that connects differentiation and Response to Intervention (RTI)
Easy-to-follow structure that helps you experience success in the classroom
Practical and specific tools, surveys, templates, and checklists
100 illustrative figures and diagrams
In-depth information on assessment, choice opportunities, tiered assignments, grouping methods, student independence, grading, differentiating for gifted learners, teacher leaders, and schoolwide action plans
CD-ROM with dozens of useful reproducible forms and templates
As you implement these best practices, you will be making differentiation a regular part of your teaching. "The habit of differentiation results in students enthusiastically engaged in learning, experiencing increasing levels of success, and gaining confidence in themselves as learners," writes Heacox. "It results in teachers who welcome and celebrate the diversity of lives, talents, interests, and passions of their students."
