Differentiated Instruction: Creating Inclusive Classrooms, New Laminated Guide by Jacqueline Thousand and Richard Villa Now Available


From the authors of the best-selling Inclusive Education ChecklistJacqueline Thousand and Richard Villa, comes Differentiated Instruction: Creating Inclusive Classrooms, a new laminated guide designed to help teachers differentiate instruction for the diverse learners in their classrooms, including English learners, those with identified disabilities, and those impacted by poverty and homelessness.

The authors explain the what and why of inclusive education and differentiated instruction, and provide a framework, examples, as well as technology and print resources to help teachers differentiate their instruction using Retrofit and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) approaches and Multiple Intelligences (MI) theory. The guide includes a Retrofit Mismatch and Solution-Finding Template to identify and correct mismatches between facts about the student and facts about the class or lesson. The primary focus of the guide is on the proactive UDL approach, which builds in differentiated alternatives at each of four instructional design points: gathering facts about student learners, content differentiation considerations, product differentiation considerations, and process differentiation considerations. It provides a list of questions to consider at each design point, and detailed examples of the application of UDL. It also includes a section on actions administrators can take to promote inclusive schooling and differentiated instruction.

This concise yet comprehensive guide can now be purchased on our website, at Volume discounts are applied to orders of 10 copies or more.
