DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION IN LANGUAGE ARTS
Book with reproducible pages
By Barbara Doherty and Charlotte Jaffe. Presenting seven differentiation strategies (multiple intelligences, learning centers, flexible grouping, learning contracts, tiering, curriculum compacting, independent investigation), this guide provides several lessons that show the strategies in action. The first section reviews the theories behind the strategies, then the second section contains worksheets for eight units (“Character Development,” “Figurative Language,” “Dialogue,” “Cause and Effect,” “Mood,” “Compare and Contrast,” “Point of View,” “Fact and Opinion”), each with six lessons. A final section furnishes differentiation templates, including a self-evaluation form, a compare-and-contrast chart, a Venn diagram, and more. Grades 3–6. Resources. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". Good Year. 72 pages. 2018 revised edition.
