- I strongly recommend "The Differentiated Classroom: Responding to the Needs of All Learners" by Carol Ann Tomlinson (an ASCD publication).and several others by Tomlinson (she has some specific ones for k-4 and 5-9th grades). I took a workshop with her this past spring and she has a nice handle on differentiated learning. She also did a book with Jay McTighe that intergrates differentiated instruction with Understanding by Design which is on my summer reading list.
- I can also recommend an independent school teacher who has given presentations to various schools and school districts on the topic of differentiation and, perhaps more importantly, gives teachers practical applications to use in the differentiated classroom. Shannon Holub hails from the Chicago.
