Synopsis

Curriculum Mapping for Differentiated Instruction, K-8 by Michelle A. Langa, Janice L. Yost

This lively new instructional resource offers teachers a cohesive and accessible guide to curriculum mapping for the primary classroom. From curriculum mapping, the authors guide teachers through: * Use of standards and rubrics for the development of interdisciplinary units and lessons * Analysis of students' learning styles and needs * Development of differentiated content, process, products, and homework The authors' teacher-friendly framework for blending curriculum mapping with differentiated instruction ensures a student-centered classroom, and their Teachers' Tool Chests offer planning templates and task cards for the sample lessons and units in the book.

Reviews

Illustrates best instructional practices for creating and maintaining student-centered classrooms that adhere to rigorous curriculum demands. As an experienced educator who has worked with a wide range of students, I now better understand the connections between curriculum, teaching, and student products. This book will have a prominent place in my professional collection. -- Susan Ratnoff, Special Education Coordinator Helps with planning of content, methodology and assessment and gives an overview of current trends which directly impact what happens in the classroom. The illustrations are great, the charts make it easier to understand ideas presented in the text, the style is easy to read, and the research leads directly into practical ideas which all teachers can use. -- William Fitzhugh, Second Grade Teacher Brings the reader good educational models that have withstood time and does a good job of describing their essence without trivializing them. Written in an easy-to-read style. -- Lloyd Kajikawa, Consultant
