Whileathe differentiated approach to instruction continues to gain in popularity, there is still a great need for practical material to help secondary teachers who want to design engaging and meaningful lessons that will meet the needs of a diverse student body and also fulfill standards.Inspiring Middle and Secondary Learners: Honoring Differences and Creating Community Through Differentiating Instructional Practices presents a strong foundation with examples and ideas for creating an engaging classroom environment and building a community of learners who honor themselves and each other. The authors guide the reader step by step through the process of gathering student data, and show how to use this data to inform instructional practice. Low-prep, easy-to-implement strategies for differentiation are presented, along with more in-depth model lessons and rubrics in the content areas. Teachers can easily modify and/or create their own differentiated lessons using these models. Focusing on grades 6u12, this highly practical guide provides teachers with the tools they need for assessing and addressing the needs of the socially, culturally, and academically diverse students in their classrooms.
