Curiosity and inspiration are powerful catalysts for learning. In this 2nd edition of a book that has provided inspiration to countless teachers, Carol Ann Tomlinson offers three new chapters, extended examples and information in every chapter, and field-tested strategies that teachers can use in today's increasingly diverse classrooms. Tomlinson shows how to use students' readiness levels, interests, and learning profiles to address student diversity. In addition, the author shows teachers how to differentiate, or structure, lessons at every grade level and content area to provide scaffolds--as well as high-speed elevators--for * The content of lessons, * The processes used in learning, and * The products of learning. Teachers can draw on the book's practical examples as they begin to differentiate instruction in their own classrooms. Strategies include curriculum, compacting, sidebar investigations, entry points, graphic organizers, contracts, and portfolios. As Tomlinson says, Differentiation challenges us to draw on our best knowledge of teaching and learning. It suggests that there is room for both equity and excellence in our classrooms. How is this book different from the 1st edition? * 3 new chapters, focusing on teacher responses to student differences, providing new examples and strategies, addressing parent involvement, and discussing grading and assessment. * 16 new illustrations, showing examples of differentiated content, products, and processes. * New foreword. * More references and resources. * New, larger format and design

Although much has changed in schools in recent years, the power of differentiated instruction remains the same--and the need for it has only increased. Today's classroom is more diverse, more inclusive, and more plugged into technology than ever before. And it's led by teachers under enormous pressure to help decidedly unstandardized students meet an expanding set of rigorous, standardized learning targets. In this updated second edition of her best-selling classic work, Carol Ann Tomlinson offers these teachers a powerful and practical way to meet a challenge that is both very modern and completely timeless: how to divide their time, resources, and efforts to effectively instruct so many students of various backgrounds, readiness and skill levels, and interests. With a perspective informed by advances in research and deepened by more than 15 years of implementation feedback in all types of schools, Tomlinson explains the theoretical basis of differentiated instruction, explores the variables of curriculum and learning environment, shares dozens of instructional strategies, and then goes inside elementary and secondary classrooms in nearly all subject areas to illustrate how real teachers are applying differentiation principles and strategies to respond to the needs of all learners. This book's insightful guidance on what to differentiate, how to differentiate, and why lays the groundwork for bringing differentiated instruction into your own classroom or refining the work you already do to help each of your wonderfully unique learners move toward greater knowledge, more advanced skills, and expanded understanding. Today more than ever, The Differentiated Classroom is a must-have staple for every teacher's shelf and every school's professional development collection.

Methods and Strategies for Gifted Professional Development

Teacher preparation programs may not adequately train teachers in how to meet the needs of gifted and talented students in the regular classroom. Several states offer additional teacher preparation programs by providing either an endorsement or certification in the field, but these are often pursued by teachers specifically enrolled in gifted coursework rather than in general education programs. Practitioners and researchers agree that time and energy should be spent on training teachers in how to address the needs of gifted and talented students, both within the regular classroom and in specialized programs. This three-book series acknowledges this need and provides specific strategies for professional development in a variety of settings using various methods. Drawing on both literature in the field and research-based best practices in professional learning, this series provides the reader with a foundation for designing and implementing effective professional development experiences for educators working with gifted learners. An Introduction to Professional Learning Strategies focuses on a variety of techniques and methods in professional development. From reflection practices to using case studies to incorporating technology, authors provide specific tools and resources to consider when delivering effective professional development related to this specific population of learners.
