This book is the first in a new series from Carol Ann Tomlinson and Caroline Cunningham Eidson exploring how real teachers incorporate differentiation principles and strategies throughout an entire instructional unit.

Each unit highlights underlying standards, delineates learning goals, and takes you step by step through the instructional process. Unit developers provide running commentary on their use of flexible grouping and pacing, tiered assignments and assessments, negotiated criteria, and numerous other strategies.
The models and insight presented will inform your own differentiation efforts and help you meet the challenge of mixed-ability classrooms with academically responsive curriculum appropriate for all learners.
