From the Back Cover

THE DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION BOOK of LISTS

Differentiated Instruction (DI) puts the focus on student activity rather than direct teacher instruction. In differentiated classrooms, students are doing things like moving around the room to learning stations, leading discussions, giving presentations, and working on teams to solve creative problems. These involved students are highly invested in learning and are given a wide variety of opportunities to succeed.

The Differentiated Instruction Book of Lists is the definitive reference for Differentiated Instruction for teachers in grades K-12. Ready for immediate use, this handy resource includes more than 150 up-to-date lists for developing instructional materials, planning lessons, and assessing students. Written by two experts on the topic, the book is filled with practical examples, proven teaching ideas, and engaging activities that can be used or adapted to meet the wide range of students' individual needs.

Authors Jenifer Fox and Whitney Hoffman show how to:

  • Teach with the individual in mind
  • Plan a differentiated curriculum
  • Create strategies for differentiating language arts, math, science, social studies, art, physical education, and health
  • Employ commonly used DI techniques for various grade levels
  • Develop DI classroom management skills
  • Tap into new media strategies that naturally differentiate instruction

With this hands-on guide, teachers can meet the instructional needs of all students so that they can reach their full potential.

As a new teacher I have found the information in this book extremely helpful. It's one thing to be told it's important to differentiate within your classroom and why but it's the how that becomes challenging.

This book gives practical, real-life examples that are categorized into both age groups and subject areas. It is current and includes lots of tips using technology.

Plus there is a related website with additional free information.

I'm very impressed and will used this valuable resource regularly.

I thought the book had a lot of good general teaching ideas, but it had very few solid and specific ideas for differentiated instruction. There were a few examples for tiering and learning contracts, but activities such as using graphic organizers are not DI-specific strategies. The suggestions are very broad, e.g., timelines, gallery walks, political cartoons as ways to differentiate teaching social studies. But what was missing were the specifics for content, product, and process.

Wow. Talk about preachy. It's off-putting to read in the intro and in some of the lists that this is a panacea for all that ails us. Again. There are good ideas here, but there are other books out there that are as good and use a more positive approach to presenting the same information. In addition, I felt the author was talking down to dim-witted teachers who are too out of it to understand the value of the ideas. Heavens to Betsy! DI is not a fad? Please tell me more! Lacking in respect for the reader, it was also lacking in the ability to make me want to read a lot of this. I give it a "meh."

This is actually a pretty practical and useful book. All of the information is in the format of lists of things to try, which makes it easy to use. The last few chapters are also specific to different content areas. I can see myself feeling stuck, grabbing this book and reading through the content area suggestions for new ways to differentiate or accommodate. This is a book on teaching that I expect to actually use while teaching, which is rare. I recommend it.
