  3. Differentiating The Curriculum: Supporting Teachers to Thrive in Mixed-Ability Classrooms

    In mixed-ability classrooms, it is inevitable that students will have different learning styles, backgrounds, prior knowledge, experience and willingness to learn. While teachers may be unable to change the content prescribed by their school, they have an enormous amount of control in the way they assign this content to their students.

  5. Assessment and Student Success in a Differentiated Classroom

    Carol Ann Tomlinson and Tonya R. Moon take an in-depth look at assessment and show how differentiation can improve the process in all year levels and subject areas. After discussing differentiation in general, the authors focus on how differentiation applies to various forms of assessment – pre-assessment, formative assessment and summative assessment – and to grading and student reports. Detailed scenarios illustrate how assessment differentiation can occur in three realms and how it can improve assessment validity and reliability and decrease errors and teacher bias. Assessment and Student Success in a Differentiated Classroom outlines a common-sense approach that empowers teachers and students to discover and achieve their full potential.

  6. Working Inside the Black Box

    Working Inside the Black Box offers easy-to-read advice for teachers on how to implement the key techniques within formative assessment, such as questioning, feedback, and peer/self assessment. While other works in the Black Box series have been designed to support assessment for learning, Working inside the Black Box takes a more practical slant, offering practical ideas and advice for the improvement of classroom assessment through the key formative assessment methods. The philosophy of the Black Box series is that formative assessment is considerably more than the sum of a series of handy tips and techniques; rather, it is about creating a learning culture within the classroom that enables the student to become an independent and effective learner.

  7. Inside the Black Box: Science

    Science provides the means by which learners can interact with the world around them and develop ideas about the phenomena they experience. To be able to learn science in this way, students need help in developing process skills to investigate, and communication skills to question and discuss findings. The specific aim of Inside the Black Box: Science is the improvement of science education, so ideas are put in the context of the aims and expectations of science teaching. The book sets out in detail the research findings on four main ways of practising formative assessment found to be both workable and productive with teachers of science, and it shows teachers how to develop formative work within a science faculty in a school.
