Dedicated to Teachers


Shifting Class Instruction Toward Differentiation

NTBT_NoMoreReading_2

The research is compelling: When teachers differentiate reading instruction, students learn more. But teachers are too often given the expectation of differentiation without the details on how to make it work. In No More Reading Instruction Without Differentiation, Lynn Bigelman and Debra Peterson offer a framework that adapts instruction based on individual students' needs and interests.

In the following video, Lynn Bigelman and Debra Peterson explain how to incorporate differentiation into daily classroom instruction. They suggest workshops with a mini-lesson at the beginning and then independent work where students work on texts that are differentiated at their level.
