100 Ways to Differentiate Instruction in K - 12 Classrooms
By

Rating
This is an extremely practical reference that gives teachers 100 quick adaptations to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of their students. Teachers are often reluctant to differentiate instruction or include students with disabilities because they simply do not know how to do so. In many cases, they do not know how to adapt a textbook, create a set of guided notes, or provide seating supports. This book aims to demonstrate how easy it is to create such adaptations and how little time and energy it can take to create opportunities for all learners to have meaningful participation in general education lessons. It is the ultimate guide to 'make and take' adaptations. This book features concrete, tangible teacher-created material supports designed to help students with and without disabilities who may need extra support, scaffolding, reminders, organizational help, or even enrichment. It does not simply suggest lesson format ideas, activities, or teaching strategies; every suggestion featured in this book is illustrated. Many of the supports were originally designed with students with autism in mind, but all of the ideas are appropriate for any learner needing something different including those with Down syndrome, emotional disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and learning disabilities. Teachers working with English-language learners and other students with unique learning profiles may also find the materials useful.
