This book demonstrates how to make your classroom more responsive to the needs of individual students with a wide variety of learning styles, interests, goals, cultural backgrounds, and prior knowledge. Focusing on grades 6 through 12, this book showcases classroom-tested activities and strategies.

Differentiated Instruction: A Guide for Middle and High School Teachers shows you how to vary your instruction so you can respond to the needs of individual learners. The concrete examples in this book demonstrate how you can use differentiated instruction to clarify:

• the content (what you want students to know and be able to do)

• the process (how students are going to go about learning the content)

• and the product (how they will show you what they know.)

This book is uniquely interactive. It features "Reflections" to help you understand your teaching style and guide you towards developing habits of mind which result in effective differentiated instruction.

Also included is a chapter on teaching students whose native language is not English.
