Differentiating Instruction for Students With Learning Disabilities

Differentiating Instruction for Students With Learning Disabilities
New Best Practices for General and Special Educators

Third Edition

October 2012 | 216 pages | Corwin
In order to meet the needs of students with learning disabilities in the classrooms of today and tomorrow, general and special educators must work together to differentiate instruction. The new differentiation must take place within an RTI framework, it must make use of the most modern technologies, and it must engage students' interests. In this new book, William Bender builds on the success of Differentiating Instruction for Students With Learning Disabilities by providing new ideas, strategies, and examples of the most effective instructional practices. With an emphasis on real world problem solving and brain-based learning, this book will be an invaluable and practical resource for current and future elementary teachers.

"The ideas on differentiation presented in this book are wonderful! They are new, innovative, current, interesting, and very practical. I could easily implement some of these ideas in my classroom tomorrow!"

"I found the chapters easy to read as well as easy to return to and locate information you wanted to return to. Each chapter had examples for the reader that were relevant to the topic and things that a teacher could see using in the classroom. It was an excellent review for me, so I think veteran teachers will benefit from the book."
