DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION IN THE TEACHING PROFESSION
By Kristen Koppers
Learning how to differentiate learning starts with modifications to current assignments. It all begins with knowing the students’ needs and interests while giving them the opportunities to take ownership of their work. In this text, the author focuses on how the use of interdisciplinary units and collaboration connects educators together to share a common goal of focusing on student achievement. Learning how to differentiate shouldnʼt involve hours of recreating assignments. Differentiated Instruction in the Teaching Profession is an innovative way to use critical thinking skills to create strategies to help all students succeed. This book is for educators of all levels who want to take the next step into differentiating their instruction.
