Overview

Discover how two of education's most powerful frameworks can team up to provide your school with a comprehensive and in-depth approach to ensure all students are learning at maximum levels.

The leading experts on Differentiated Instruction and Understanding by Design explain how to connect these two approaches and use their combined power to:

  • Meet content standards and prepare for high-stakes tests while providing students with multiple learning pathways.
  • Use the backward design approach to develop curriculum units and lessons that can be differentiated in response to students' different readiness levels, abilities, and learning styles.
  • Combine drill and practice with differentiated performance tasks to inspire understanding of content.
  • Create a fair, criterion-referenced assessment approach that supports standards and differentiation.

Find out how a curriculum built on the goal of student understanding, integrated with instructional approaches that emphasize reaching every learner, can provide teachers with more specific teaching targets and more flexible ways to reach them.

As an education professor, I have used this book in many of my courses to assist teachers in learning to plan using backward design. This is one of the best texts helping teaching candidates to understand that differentiation of instruction is not an add-on, but should be incorporated into planning. This text gives teaching candidates clear insight into the basic principles behind effective unit and lesson planning. It is reader-friendly and clearly written. This text is a must for any teacher's professional library.

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.
