Many classroom teachers want to use differentiated instruction techniques more effectively to support student learning, but they are unsure where or how to start.
Enter Welda Simousek and Virginia Pickerell, two educators with a combined eighty years of experience working at all levels of public education. Together, Simousek and Pickerell have created How to Get to the Heart of Differentiation, an indispensible guide to understanding and employing principles of differentiation in the classroom.
Including multiple examples of formative assessments appropriate for all grade levels, this book equips classroom teachers to engage students in their learning and better understand where they are in mastery of concepts and material.
These real-time assessments can provide important information for both teachers and students without taking up valuable instructional time. Both self-reflective and interactive in nature, the assessment tools deliver data teachers can use to move students forward in their understanding and learning.
A must-have for every teacher who cares about using best practices to support student learning and achievement, How to Get to the Heart of Differentiation should be required reading for every public educator in the nation.
