Praise for Differentiating Instruction in the Regular Classroom


“At this time of increasingly standardized approaches to instruction and assessment, Diane Heacox’s book brings education back to how it works best: Actually responding to children rather than simply responding to curricular mandates.”—Jane Bluestein, Ph.D., author of Creating Emotionally Safe Schools

“A practical guide for teachers new to or interested in the process of differentiation. Drawing on Bloom’s taxonomy, Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, and other experts in the field of educational psychology, Heacox presents several practical strategies and ideas that teachers can use to differentiate instruction at any level in any curriculum . . . The reader will come away with some good, practical suggestions for increasing the challenge level for gifted students.”—Journal for the Education of the Gifted

Common Core State Standards

This book guides you through the process of differentiating a curriculum unit, including both choice boards and tiered assignments—all based on the Common Core State Standards. Working from the Common Core State Standards or the content standards established by your state or province, Differentiating Instruction in the Regular Classroom guides you through the process of differentiating a curriculum unit, including both choice boards and tiered assignments—all based on the Common Core. You will begin by writing essential questions and unit questions based on the Common Core to frame and focus your curriculum. You’ll find a format for mapping your curriculum and identifying target areas for differentiating instruction. Your curriculum map will serve as a resource in developing other strategies presented in the book. The book also provides a unit planning template that enables you to quickly and easily align student tasks, projects, and assessments with the Common Core State Standards. Finally, the process for designing choice boards and tiered assignments is introduced. Examples of these differentiated tasks based on Common Core are provided in multiple subject areas and grade levels. —Diane Heacox, Ed.D.
