Educational research is plentiful, but often abstract and lacking obvious practical applications for teachers. In Collaborate, Communicate & Differentiate: How to Increase Student Learning in Today's Diverse Schools, authors Wendy Murawski and Sally Spencer take research about collaborative teaching from the abstract to the concrete to offer valuable strategies for improving collaboration amongst teachers in order to improve student learning.

With the 2004 reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA), more emphasis is being placed on educating students in the least restrictive environment.  Consequently, more schools rely on a collaborative partnership model as students with disabilities, gifted students and English language learners (ELLs) all are included in general education classrooms. However, many teachers lack the training and therefore the skills essential for successful collaboration. Collaborate, Communicate & Differentiate is a valuable tool for teachers that helps them bridge this gap. The authors link research-based ideas with practical, concrete strategies for effectively collaborating to improve not only academic performance, but also student behavior, social skills and self-esteem.

In a humorous, informal style, Collaborate, Communicate & Differentiate: How to Increase Student Learning in Today's Diverse Schools offers answers to common questions, such as:

  • How do you collaborate with other professionals to teach English or math most effectively?
  • How do you collaborate with office staff to get your IEPs done on time?
  • What are the tips and tricks to make collaboration reasonable, given the constraints of teacher time and schedules?

 There is always room for improvement in collaboration, making this book a valuable resource for general and special education teachers, school administrators, paraprofessionals, staff developers and special service providers alike.
