About the Author

Danny Brassell, PhD, Department of Teacher Education, California State University--Dominguez Hills, USA


"Are you looking for a way (or many ways) to make vocabulary instruction come alive for your students? Then Dare to Differentiate, Third Edition is for you. Not only does Brassell present an array of engaging instructional strategies, but he also provides ways to make each strategy work for different students and classrooms. Differentiation makes the difference! I highly recommend this extraordinary volume." - Timothy Rasinski, Department of Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum Studies, Kent State University, USA "Dare to Differentiate jumps right into ideas and strategies that elementary teachers can start using immediately to embed vocabulary learning throughout the curriculum. The easy-to-use format includes a description of each strategy plus a classroom example that shows how it works. This book is a great addition to any educator's library." - Joanne Toft, former K-6 teacher and Associate Director, Arts for Academic Achievement, Minneapolis Public Schools, USA
