Differentiation is a practice that is beneficial to every student. Rather than focusing on leaving no child behind, differentiation aims to move every child ahead. The trouble for many teachers is, however, that differentiating for all students is time consuming. Differentiation Made Simple will help classroom teachers overcome time constraints and other obstacles to differentiation by providing a wealth of ready-made and generic tools they can employ right away. The tools include task cards for literature, creative writing, and research; tic-tac-toe menus; graphic organizers; and guides to creating differentiated units-each one tied to specific questions and concerns teachers have about differentiating instruction! Also included are product lists and other assessment ideas, including rubrics and a scoring conversion table. Written especially for teachers in the trenches, Differentiation Made Simple will help unlock the door to creating a classroom where every child is challenged by work appropriate for his or her abilities, interests, and learning styles.
