Synopsis

Differentiated Instructional Management (Multimedia Kit) A Multimedia Kit for Professional Development by Carolyn M. Chapman, Rita S. King

Chapman & King's innovative models for teaching in the differentiated classroom stress positive classroom climate, understanding student thinking styles, meeting diverse student needs, and empowering students both inside and outside the classroom. Applying those models to classroom management is the focus of this new book. Among the topics covered in their trademark lively style are * creating safe and accepting classroom environments that promote confidence for diverse learners; * motivating students through affective factors, including rapport, challenge, excitement, humor, respect, choice, and self-efficacy; * observing and assessing student needs and preferences; * customizing approaches for working with shy and nervous students, impatient students, turned off students, and more; * customizing communications both with students and with parents of diverse backgrounds; * transitioning into and out of flexible groups; * creating classroom celebrations that reinforce student successes; and more. Ready-to-use tools, agendas, checklists, organizers, and other graphics facilitate application of the strategies in differentiated classrooms for learners in grades PreK-3, 4-8, and 9-12.

Reviews

This book is loaded! It has every topic you ever wanted to know about differentiation. -- Kael Sagheer, Fifth-Grade Teacher (06/04/2007) Assessment is the name of the game, and I can see this being a hot item for training and for individual teachers. I cannot tell you how much I love the user-friendly simplicity of the book, and I can't wait to use it with teachers! This is what we have been waiting for. -- Linda S. Prichard, Instructional Specialist (06/04/2007) This book offers the teacher a multitude of examples, activities, and strategies to create a learning environment that is truly differentiated for the diverse learners in their classroom. Anyone who assists in the professional development of teachers or the preparation of future educators will find the book very useful. -- Laura B. Harper, Supervisor of Student Teachers (06/04/2007) Very useful for both the novice and veteran teacher. This book gives the new teacher an unbelievable collection of activities and strategies in a comprehensive manner. For the veteran educator, this book will either re-introduce tools previously learned or teach some new strategies that will help meet the diverse needs of today's learners. -- Valorie M. Catalano, Director (05/21/2007) The numerous charts, tables, and graphic displays are ready-made and easy to incorporate immediately. Managing a differentiated classroom is one of the most difficult aspects of teaching, but its rewards are well worth the time spent planning, preparing materials, and presenting lessons. It is hard work, but anything less is a disservice to our students. -- Karen Nina T. Klingerman, Coordinator of Professional Development and Literacy Programs (06/04/2007)
