Beyond Differentiated Instruction provides the framework, sequential steps, and practical strategies for implementing a comprehensive and systematic differentiated instructional programme.

Using vivid case studies and extensive research and covering a wide range of topics, Jodi O'Meara examines how each issue relates to differentiation, including standards, teacher reflection, the relationship between response to intervention, and the necessary pre-planning, planning, implementation, and monitoring stages—all while providing the practical templates and start-up tools for busy teachers and school administrators.
