I took a trip this weekend to Barnes & Noble and decided to pick up a few books to add to my summer reading list. As a prepare for next year, I needed something that will add a new perspective on strategies, activities, and lesson plan ideas that are already in my repertoire. I will begin with “Advancing Differentiation” because it was the first book that caught my eye and I LOVE reading about differentiation strategies. As a read, I will share with you my thoughts and reflections. Stay tuned!!!
If you are looking for a great book on differentiated instruction, check out Diane Heacox’s Making Differentiation a Habit. It is a great book with tons of examples. I found it to be a much easier read than most books on the topic. The book also comes with a CD full of reproducibles. It has quickly become a go-to reference for any and all differentiated activities that I utilize in my classroom. A colleague of mine picked up the book upon my recommendation and she always carries it with her. If you own this book or have read it, leave a review in the comment. Pick up the book form amazon.com.
