If you're a teacher with an academically diverse classroom (and what classrooms aren't today?), you need this resource. Framed around the critical elements for success in today's classrooms, Making Differentiation a Habit gives educators specific, user-friendly tools, including differentiated instruction examples, to optimize teaching, learning, and assessment for all, including gifted students.
Following on the heels of Diane Heacox's best-selling teacher resource, Differentiating Instruction in the Regular Classroom, this book offers new ideas, fresh perspectives, and additional research-based strategies to help teachers seamlessly integrate differentiated instruction practices into their daily routines.
With Making Differentiation a Habit you get all this and more:
- Cutting-edge research that connects differentiation and Response to Intervention (RTI)
- Easy-to-follow structure that helps you experience success in the classroom
- Practical and specific tools, surveys, templates, and checklists
- 100 illustrative figures and diagrams
- In-depth information on assessment, choice opportunities, tiered assignments, grouping methods, student independence, grading, differentiating for gifted students, teacher leaders, and schoolwide action plans
- CD-ROM with dozens of useful customizable reproducible forms and templates
As you implement these best practices, you will be making differentiation a regular part of your teaching. "The habit of differentiation results in students enthusiastically engaged in learning, experiencing increasing levels of success, and gaining confidence in themselves as learners," writes Heacox. "It results in teachers who welcome and celebrate the diversity of lives, talents, interests, and passions of their students."
