Editorial Reviews

Review

We've always known that each student in our classrooms is different yet all too often we ignore this reality and treat them as if they were all the same. This just isn't good enough, anymore. Rutherford s latest book provides educators with the tools they need to close this persistent knowing-doing gap and reach every learner. Students are different and the only way that all students can learn is if we deliver learning opportunities that are relevant, rigorous, and respectful. Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners delivers the strategies to work with all the students in our classrooms in the same way Rutherford provided the practical know-how in Instruction for All Students and Why Didn't I Learn This in College? --Jeff Craig, Assistant Superintendent OCM BOCES Syracuse, New York

Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners is a comprehensive resource for the classroom teacher as he or she ensures all students are successful learners. Paula Rutherford sets the context for teaching and learning today and reminds educators to focus on students strengths and appreciate the gifts they bring to their classrooms. She provides tools teachers may access to plan for differentiation of lessons in order to ensure student learning within the universal tier of instruction. I will use this resource as a foundational tool in my work with new teachers. --Sue Gill, Human Resources Director, Jefferson County Public Schools, Coloardo

WOW - this is the book teachers & school districts have been waiting for! I've looked at literally hundreds of resource books for teachers, but I've NEVER before found one this extensive or this user friendly. This is the soup to nuts compendium of practical strategies and tools for teachers to meet the needs of EVERY student that could walk through their classroom door. Just ASK Publications' Meeting the Needs for Diverse Learners should be on the desk of every teacher - where else could they find - distilled down to the essentials, the why, how to and what then of methodologies to meet the challenges of the At-risk, Struggling, Special Needs, Gifted & Talented and English Language Learners - all in one easy to use reference work! Even in these hard economic times, this book has moved to the top of our must buy for next year. All I can say is, Thank you, Paula, for creating a tool that will help every teacher, no matter what their experience level! --Betsy Geery, Professional Development Center Coordinator, Las Cruces Public Schools, New Mexico

Should have bought the book not the Kindle Edition. Kindle Edition does not translate as well as I think the hard copy would.

Format: Perfect Paperback
I chose this because of the number of students I have in my classroom that are from different cultures. What a shock (in a good way!) when I learned that it was not only about English Language Learners, but ALL different kinds of students (At risk, struggling, GT, etc.) The best thing about the book is that I now have strategies to try in my classroom. Very helpful book.
