In this updated edition of the popular and trusted guide, Diane Heacox provides a practical introduction to differentiation and explains how differentiated instruction can work in a wide range of settings to provide variety and challenge in how teachers teach and in how students learn. Individual chapters focus on evaluation in a differentiated classroom and how to manage both behavior and work tasks. The author describes ways to get to know students and recognize that all have strengths and limitations. Differentiated instruction lesson plans are provided as templates and forms, with examples to illustrate differentiation in many content areas.
