You'll get a bound printed text.
This new text is much like a “how to” guide for differentiating instruction in for today’s educators with a diverse population of students to serve. Seasoned with authentic examples from elementary teachers and their real classrooms, the text offers: a plethora of advice for implementing strategies in literacy-based classrooms; creative ways to create effective learning environments; appropriate instructional techniques based on students’ abilities, learning profiles, and interests; and strategies to differentiate in the reading areas of emerging literacy skills, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency, writing, speaking, listening, and content area reading. Every chapter in the book includes specific illuminating classroom examples, questions for reflecting on the reading, active engagement ideas for further exploration of the topic, and conclusions. Unique to this text is the inclusion of a journal kept by an elementary teacher, whose classroom is visited in the text, demonstrating a year’s worth of successful implementation of differentiation assessment and instruction. Keenly focused on the needs of pre-service teachers, with ample strategies to positively impact the classrooms of current teachers, Differentiated Literacy and Language Arts Strategies for the Elementary Classroom addresses the reader with an engaging personalized tone and demystifies the process of differentiated instruction for all teachers.
