Educators and experts now recognize that a one-size-fits-all instructional approach is unlikely to maximize achievement for all learners. The challenge is turning this realization into a differentiation process that best serves all students. This book pragmatically approaches the collaborative spirit of professional learning communities (PLCs) and the rigorous work of differentiated classroom instruction, addressing both teaching decisions for professional staff and learning decisions for students. It examines how PLCs provide the decision-making platform to implement instruction that is responsive to varied learning styles and needs.

Teachers need plausible methods to put the profound theories of collaboration and differentiation into classroom practice. This practical guide offers tools and techniques for reflective dialogue in implementing a PLC that supports differentiated instruction. The chapters can either stand alone or create a comprehensive view of differentiated instruction. Takeaway objectives at the beginning of each chapter guide discussion, and each chapter ends with action options of highly interactive strategies.


  • Applies to all teachers and grade levels
  • Offers chapter takeaways that guide discussion
  • Recommends highly interactive action options to accomplish chapter takeaways
  • Combines differentiated instruction and PLCs in a practical guide to maximize student achievement
  • Provides summaries of relevant theories and research on building teams, forging shared beliefs, dissecting data, attaining consensus, and teaching responsively
