Editorial Reviews

Review

Differentiation and the Brain combines the perspectives of differentiation and neuroscience to build a convincing, well described, clearly understood application of differentiation strategies. The book presents the brain research to support the recommendations without overstepping claims of proven by brain research. Sousa and Tomlinson offer an important perspective to new and experienced classroom teachers, curriculum advisors, and administrators. --Judy Willis, MD, MEd

Differentiation and the Brain is more than another new book to stack on our desks; it is an education event. Expert and engaging with clear, vivid descriptions of the principles used in real classrooms, the book makes the fields of neuroscience and differentiation accessible without oversimplifying. It provides great next steps for seasoned veterans as well as practical tips for new teachers. This will be one of those books we reread over the years to spark creativity and restoke pedagogical fires. It is a welcome contribution from two of the most amazing thinkers of our time. --Rick Wormeli, author and consultant

Tomlinson and Sousa emphasize that differentiation is a shared responsibility between teacher and student. They provide a solid rationale for differentiation in educational neuroscience and then offer practical strategies for embedding differentiation into our classroom practices. This will be a go-to resource for teachers! --Diane Heacox, EdD, author of Differentiating Instruction in the Regular Classroom and Making Differentiation a Habit

The text produced by Tomlinson and Sousa provides a fast read. Differentiation and the Brain is a great introduction into how research in neuroscience supports the use of differentiated learning opportnities for all classrooms. The text itself is not bogged down with statistical data but rather is explained in user-friendly terms. With the relatively recent convergence of neuroscience and education, this is a read sure to encourage more strategic planning on the part of educators.

yep! a winner! very usable as a middle school science teacher with a HUGE range of student abilities. I guess a gem in a crowded field of pretty useless books. definitely recommended. approaches differentiation from 4 angles--super relevant and applicable.

Differentiation and the Brain offers simple, easy to understand explanations of how to create a "brain friendly" classroom for diverse students. The authors also include some practical checklists, questions and techniques. However, I found that there was a lot more depth about the topics that I wanted to know that was not present in the book. Nevertheless, it's a great place to start learning about differentiated instruction.

The pairing up of these two "giants" in the field of education, also brings valid resons as to how neuroscience is a major influence on leraning and why differnetion is necessary. Finally some data to support the idea of differentiation. A good book for teachers of any grade to have as a resource for understanding students

The authors are amazing. I have attended more than a few of Tomlinson's workshops back in the day. This book is a wonderful update and enhanced understanding of some very tried and true approached to classroom instruction and planning. It is worth the read.
