“Teachers face an enormous challenge every day. How can they possibly address the great variety of learning needs in their classes? By combining the research in differentiation and neuroscience, the top thinkers on these two subjects, Carol Ann Tomlinson and David Sousa, provide a well-thought-out response.

“Many books on differentiation simply list differentiation strategies teachers can use, but they dont provide the groundwork necessary for the differentiation to succeed. In contrast, Tomlinson and Sousa astutely take a step back and help teachers see the big picture. They show how the larger elements—curriculum, assessment, classroom environment—need to be shaped to truly support differentiation. Only then do they provide more concrete suggestions for differentiating in the classroom.”
