  1. Text Sets in Action: Pathways Through Content Area Literacy

    In Text sets in action: Pathways through content area literacy, Mary Ann Cappiello and Erika Thulin Dawes reveal how text sets can prompt serious thinking far more effectively than a textbook or any single text. As the authors explain, exploring many texts leads teachers and learners to ‘think more deeply, empathise more fully, and take action more deliberately’. Teachers who adopt this approach find that the texts’ various lenses enable students not only to meet curriculum standards but also to experience lasting engagement and a spirit of inquiry across the disciplines.

  6. Everybody's Classroom: Differentiating for the Shared and Unique Needs of Diverse Students

    This book offers F–12 teachers both the foundations for differentiating their instruction and the means to maximise learning opportunities by getting to know students beyond the labels and stereotypes that often accompany them into the classroom. Tomlinson shows how to use ‘highways and exit ramps’ to reach the whole class, with ‘highway’ content and ‘exit ramps’ to specialise needs. Chapters offer numerous recommendations for modifying environments, activities and assessments; for helping teachers move forward in their instructional planning; and for helping each learner grow academically. Everybody’s classroom extends Tomlinson’s previous work by looking more deeply at specific student populations to help educators create classrooms that are more inclusive than ever before.
