Product Overview

"Quite simply, I would love to have hadAdolescent Literacyand Differentiated Instruction as a secondary language arts teacher.... The book makes me itch to go back to my secondary classroom to see how I could use contemporary technologies as vehicles for differentiation."

-Carol Ann Tomlinson

As a secondary teacher,Adolescent Literacy and Differentiated Instruction shows you how to effectively respond to the growing crisis in adolescent literacy. It's the first book that shows how to base lessons on students' strengths and target back-up instruction to their needs so they can improve in literacy, master content, and meet the demands of higher-level learning.

InAdolescent Literacy and Differentiated Instruction, Barbara King-Shaverand Alyce Hunter summon the latest research and share effective, essential differentiation practices. With more than 30 replicable models and practical ideas for managing differentiated classrooms, King-Shaver and Hunter help you:

assess students' individual needs, interests, and learning styles

turn assessment into doable plans for targeted instruction

implement dynamic differentiation strategies such as stations, flexible grouping, choice, and anchor activities.

Drawing on NCTE's guidelines for promoting adolescent literacy, King-Shaver and Hunter offer suggestions for teaching not only reading, writing, listening, and speaking but also viewing multimedia texts and engaging with digital literacy.

Read Adolescent Literacy and Differentiated Instruction, use its study guide with colleagues, and discover that with adolescent literacy, the best way to make a difference is by embracing difference.
