    One thought on “Differentiated Classroom: Responding to the Need of All Learners”

    1. I wish I had known about this book sooner. I'll never go back to teaching without differentiating the interest, curriculum, or medium again. There are so many good ideas on how to use contracts and menues as well as changing the format of lessons for your students with different learning styles. This book is so necessary in todays American classroom where your learners come from a variety of backgrounds and learning situations.

    2. Actually, this is probably a three-star book, but I'm beyond exasperated with the way ASCD publications drive professional development in some school districts, and so dinged it a star out of frustration. Tomlinson's ideas are sound, if thin on specifics. As a general text for all subject areas and all age-levels, this serves to raise a basic level of understanding without bogging down in minutia irrelevant to most readers. It provides some resources for further study so that an energetic teache [...]

    3. Maybe I'd have rated this higher if I hadn't already read Integrating Differentiated Instruction and Understanding by Design. If you're in education, you should definitely read something about differentiated instruction. In its extreme form, I don't know how anyone does it and still has a life, but a basic philosophy of knowing all kids are at different readiness levels with different interests and different learning strengths and it's my job vocation help ALL of them learn--that means you can't [...]

    4. This will be a slow read. By that I mean, I will be reading it slowly, not it's too hard to read quickly. I have two chapters left. Man, this would be such hard work, but what a great place to learn. I think there would have to be much training done at the start of the year to get kids that are not used to this system to be able to function in this kind of environment. My advice and the advice of the author is - go slowly. Start with one chance and work to add more. I think you would fail if you [...]

    5. Modern message for "everyone learns differently" and how to reach each student by creating opportunities for each child to shine through varying the product and process of learning with continual assessments. Objectives are the same for all, but the process of learning, or the product created by the student to demonstrate what was learned differs depending on the students group category or individual needs. Author presents at the Annual National Differentiated Instruction conference in Las Vegas [...]

    6. This is a must read for both the new as well as the seasoned teacher. I wish every teacher would take the time to read an implement at least some of the ideas in this book so that every child's diverse needs are met. All children are different and instruction needs to accommodate for these differences. We need classrooms across America that work to differentiate instruction so our children get the best we can give them!

    7. If you are looking to incorporate differentiated instructional practices into your practice, this is one of two primary texts I would recommend to get you started. We can help more kids be successful. This book will help you re-organize your thinking so you can get started! Oh, the other text, also by Tomlinson, is entitled "How to Differentiate Instruction in Mixed Ability Classrooms" - very worthwhile.

    8. Carol Ann Tomlinson gives an overview of differentiation and includes tricks, tips, and templates to help even a beginner get started. Differentiation SHOULD be a part of every classroom. An excellent resource for teachers and also for parents who want to be able to advocate for their children.

    10. This was the text book for my Differentiated Instruction class, and it's awesome! It breaks DI down into manageable chunks, fully explains a variety of techniques--some ideal, but many realistic and feasible.

    11. Another one that changed my teaching. I always knew each student was individual and had individual needs when it came to learning, but this book helped me to teach to those individual needs. Tomlinson is also a fabulous presenter.

    12. Best book on differentiation I have read thus far. Lots of great, practical tips to use in the classroom. I borrowed this book from my school's library, but I'm thinking this is a "must-have" for any teacher and I will need to get my own copy!

    13. This is a good resource for teachers - I gave it a 4 because the first part is more philosophical and hard to keep reading then when the author gets into the practical application, the book became a helpful resource on differentiating in the classroom a challenging task!

    14. Books like this make me excited to teach, and to try new things to get students excited about English :)

    15. Many great ideas in here. Still, getting people to differentiate according to student need, is a quite difficult and challenging task.

    16. I didn't find this book very useful for giving me the tools necessary to differentiate instruction in my classroom. This book is superficial at best.

    17. Although this was a requirement to read, I enjoyed learning about different strategies to help children learn. It will be a very useful tool in the near future.

    18. i had to read this in chunks because it wasnt actually a classroom read in my class. i think it hit nicely on most of the aspects of different students in the class and the teaching methods used.

    19. Pretty good. Added to how I think about differentiation by addressing philosophical underpinnings and practical approaches.
