Based on research and the authors' experiences over the past seven years at one elementary school, Differentiation at Work, K-5 describes what schoolwide differentiation looks like in real classrooms. Lane Narvaez and Kay R. Brimijoin go beyond the "easy" definition of differentiation and describe why administrators and teachers need to receive training and ongoing support in order to achieve differentiated instruction that is responsive to students' readiness, learning styles, and interests. Their model is based on several core elements, including student feedback, the use of anchor activities, peer (teacher) collaboration, pre-assessment, and curriculum alignment. The book includes sample lesson designs that include supplemental materials, and lessons are categorized by readiness, interest, and learning style differentiation. The authors also address the topic of management and share a set of tools that have proven highly effective for facilitating and enhancing differentiation. Finally, they discuss the challenge of sustaining second order change, the role parents play in nurturing and sustaining such change, and the future possibilities for any school involved in a similar journey.

Shaping the Future with Math, Science, and Technology examines how ingenuity, creativity, and teamwork skills are part of an intellectual toolbox associated with math, science, and technology. The book provides new ideas, proven processes, practical tools, and examples useful to educators who want to encourage students to solve problems and express themselves in imaginative ways. The development of a technological knowledge-based economy depends on the development of educational systems that allow schools, teachers, and students of diverse capabilities, backgrounds and learning preferences do better with both content and imaginative problem solving. This book makes the case that it is, indeed, possible to educate our way to a better economy and a better future. Paying attention to 21st century approaches and skills can help accomplish those goals.

Rather than sounding false alarms about a genderwide crisis in boys' academic achievement, here's a book that cuts through the confusion to explain why "some" boys struggle in school and how you can effectively intervene without jeopardizing the achievements of other, more successful, learners (boys and girls). Drawing from large-scale studies, recent insights on social and learning-style factors, and lesson plans and anecdotes from real teachers, Cleveland equips you with a flexible and practical framework for addressing the needs of struggling male students that: (1) Replaces underachieving boys' negative attitudes about learning; (2) Reconnects boys to school, learning, and believing in being a competent learner; (3) Rebuilds learning skills that lead to success in school and in life; and (4) Reduces the need for unproductive and distracting behaviors as a means of self-protection. Instead of looking for a one-size-fits-all-boys solution, explore ways to identify and respond to specific reasons for underachievement among boys who fall behind and stay behind, boys who drop out too soon, and boys you just never seem to reach. This total solution helps you address: (1) The influence of nonacademic factors on academic success; (2) Factors contributing to the experience of school; (3) How competence can enhance persistence; and (4) How the classroom's physical arrangement affects a learner's success. Each aspect of this book's approach offers you a way to move underachieving boys from a position of weakness toward one of strength--giving them the tools to succeed in school and beyond.

In every mathematics classroom, the need for differentiated instruction is present: in many it's acute. Students learn at different rates, in different ways, with different successes and different challenges. Instruction must be flexible enough to meet everyone's needs and nurturing enough to not only support growth but also address the frustration that often leads to mathphobia. The Differentiated Math Classroom can help make high-quality differentiated instruction a classroom reality. It's the usable, comprehensive resource teachers need to help students of all levels and abilities succeed with math. Whether you teach math sixty minutes a day or six periods a day, The Differentiated Math Classroom describes both the big ideas of differentiation and the day-to-day teaching that makes it work. Miki Murray and Jenny Jorgensen present everything you need to get started and to help all students meet national standards, including ideas for: Setting up a classroom to maximize opportunities for differentiation and establish community Getting to know students' strengths and needs through high-quality assessments Devising anchor activities that help students work independently with meaningful math content while you free up time for individual instruction Creating tiered lessons that scaffold content and provide the flexibility to challenge some students and offer assistance to others. Murray and Jorgensen offer practical ideas for planning and designing units that engage students and facilitate learning about important math concepts, as well as teaching tools, questions for professional reflection, and answers to teachers' most frequently asked questions about differentiation. Discover that differentiated instruction is a flexible framework that supports all math learners. Filled with examples from real classes and samples of student work, The Differentiated Math Classroom will help every child learn more effectively by showing you how to think about students, mathematics, and your teaching in powerful new ways.

"To reach their potential, children need an engaging environment and a reason to learn. This book is aimed at helping teachers implement quality Common Core instruction around this principle." -Gretchen Owocki The quality of instruction is the most important factor in helping students meet the Common Core Standards. That's why Gretchen Owocki's Common Core Lesson Book empowers teachers with a comprehensive framework for implementation that enhances existing curriculum and extends it to meet Common Core goals. "Children," writes Gretchen (author of The RTI Daily Planning Book), "need teachers who believe in the power of meaningful reading as a context for instruction." She breaks the CCSS reading standards into manageable chunks that emphasize engaged, authentic reading and differentiated teaching. For each standard, she offers: a clear description of what it asks from students an instructional decision tree that connects assessment to planning instructional strategies that gradually release responsibility to students techniques for intensifying instruction when readers need more support. "In implementing the standards," writes Gretchen, "we want children to deeply engage with multiple forms of reading. I wrote this book to offer encouragement to stay grounded in meaningful instruction, and to offer a set of strategies that emphasize meaningful reading." Respond to the Common Core with The Common Core Lesson Book-you'll help students meet the standards, and so much more. PLCs and book-study groups!
