Differentiating for Success: How to Build Literacy Instruction for All Students

Creating differentiated instruction is an essential yet time-consuming component of effective teaching. Since students learn at different paces and in different ways, some students may be able to apply a targeted comprehension skill in cognitively complex ways immediately after being taught the skill while other students may need additional scaffolding in order to grasp it. All students, regardless of their skill level, benefit from activities that are at their just right level. This means activities are not too difficult or too easy. In this book, Nancy Witherell and Mary McMackin share easy-to-follow lesson plans that address key reading skills for students in grades 3 to 5. A set of three, tiered, differentiated follow-up activities accompanies each lesson. Fiction and nonfiction mentor text suggestions are included.

Reviews

School Library Connection - Elizabeth Nebeker, School Librarian, Jersey Village High School, Houston, TX

"STARRED REVIEW! Although the book is geared towards the Common Core curriculum, any elementary teacher of literacy would be benefit from this book. The breadth of the skills covered is vast, and the chapters can be used in any order according to the needs of students or the curriculum. This professional book would be a resourceful addition to any elementary professional library. Highly Recommended." - School Library Connection

Nancy Meagher, Reading Specialist, Barnstable Public Schools, MA

"This is a must read for teachers interested in high-quality instruction for all of their students. The objectives are clear, yet unscripted so that we can teach within the spirit of who we are.  Materials, model lessons, resources, and additional books are all listed for each and every lesson.  This book will be a valuable resource for me, and I can’t wait to incorporate the lessons right away! I know my colleagues will want to do the same, if I can part with my copy long enough to share!" - Nancy Meagher, Reading Specialist, Barnstable Public Schools, MA

Marlene Correia, Ed.D., District Instructional Coach - Freetown-Lakeville Regional School District, MA

"I have read all of the co-written books by these two authors and this one is by far their best one yet! The book is a comprehensive resource of literacy skills that can be applied to many varied texts. The authors explicitly "model" how to teach each skill through an easy to follow lesson plan format that  gradually releases responsibility to the students. This book is clearly organized, practical, and packed with great ideas! One of the things that sets this book apart from others on literacy differentiation is its focus on skills that are evident in the CCSS. You don't find the same old skills and strategies, but new, fresh ideas. The differentiation suggestions for three levels of students (initial, transitional and accomplished) are all manageable for a busy classroom teacher and the strategies for differentiating can easily be applied to other lessons and subject areas." - Marlene Correia, Ed.D., District Instructional Coach

Mary E. Shorey, PhD, Professor, Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Ed - Bridgewater State University, Bridgewater, MA

"...another helpful text for teachers who are concerned with the success of all students. Information on ELA skills connected to the CCSS, modeling exercises for teachers, and the three levels of student applications make this book a necessity for any teacher who wants to differentiate literacy instruction." - Mary E. Shorey, PhD, Professor, Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Ed
