    too much theory, not enough application

    This book had a lot of information about the theories behind differentiation, but not enough ideas on how to APPLY it in the classroom. It would have been nice if there had been more easy-to-refer to lists to help you transfer the knowledge to your classroom, everything was in paragraphs, making it much harder to synthesize.

    I Also Recommend:

    I prefer Sugar's "The Silent Crisis Destroying America's Brightest Minds"

    Sugar's 'The Silent Crisis Destroying America's Brightest Minds" is a book that is all about educational reality, the facts on the ground, not vacuous educational theories.

    Sugar pioneered the SMARTGRADES school notebooks that contain the new learning technology, ACANDY Processing Tools, that empower students for academic success. She transformed my kids into Grade A students, soI speak from experience, not hypothetical theory.
