Meet the highly diverse needs of primary students with these differentiated teaching strategies!
Every student who walks through the classroom door brings special gifts to the learning table. Differentiating for the Young Child helps primary teachers value and support the unique experiences and learning styles of diverse young learners.
Joan Franklin Smutny and S.E. von Fremd offer strategies and methods for promoting creative thinking and intellectual discovery across key discipline areas. They also tackle issues relating to undeserved students and discuss differentiated technology use. Revised to make differentiated learning easier, this second edition:
- Includes new charts with high- to low-preparation strategies for differentiating lessons in maths, science, social studies, and language arts
- Presents new focus questions to help teachers clarify their own priorities and target student needs efficiently
- Offers Web sites for further reference
Because the primary grades influence all the years that follow, this resource helps early childhood and primary teachers use creative, differentiated teaching strategies to meet the individual learning needs of all young children and encourage their future academic success.
