Editorial Reviews

Valorie M. Catalano
"Very useful for both the novice and veteran teacher. This book gives the new teacher an unbelievable collection of activities and strategies in a comprehensive manner. For the veteran educator, this book will either re-introduce tools previously learned or teach some new strategies that will help meet the diverse needs of today's learners."
Laura B. Harper
"This book offers the teacher a multitude of examples, activities, and strategies to create a learning environment that is truly differentiated for the diverse learners in their classroom. Anyone who assists in the professional development of teachers or the preparation of future educators will find the book very useful."
Linda S. Prichard
"I can see this being a hot item for training and for individual teachers. I cannot tell you how much I love the user-friendly simplicity of the book, and I can't wait to use it with teachers! This is what we have been waiting for."
Karen Nina T. Klingerman
"The numerous charts, tables, and graphic displays are ready-made and easy to incorporate immediately. Managing a differentiated classroom is one of the most difficult aspects of teaching, but its rewards are well worth the time spent planning, preparing materials, and presenting lessons. It is hard work, but anything less is a disservice to our students."
Kael Sagheer
"This book is loaded! It has every topic you ever wanted to know about differentiation."
