Although the ideas in this book are great, and the overall lesson/idea of the book is smart and important, the actual writing of the text failed to entice. The writing is to the point and mostly composed of lists. I suppose this could be a nice "intro" text to many disciplines, but if you have read many books on writing lessons and kinds of instructions, then this book is dry. In truth, the entire text seems to repeat itself every three chapters. It is already a short text, but it could have bee ...more
An essential resource for preparing for instruction in your classroom or school. McTighe and Tomlinson meld these two frameworks with clarity and brevity. Differentiation is a challenging concept to embed in one's instruction. Using the UbD materials allows the educator to work smartly and plan for all learners in a classroom, must just the middle of the road. I would recommend purchasing the Understanding by Design Professional Handbook in addition to this text, as it references materials in th ...more
Integrating Differentiated Instruction and Understanding by Design: Connecting Content and Kids by Carol Ann Tomlinson and Jay McTighe was read for EDU 221 Secondary/Middle Block: Curriculum, Instruction, Classroom Management, Instructional Media, and Practicum.
I read this for a class on literacy in special education over the summer. I've read other books on differentiation by Tomlinson as well as Understanding by Design. This book was a quick read and very practical. I find that often when reading about differentiation, I walk away still trying to figure out how to implement it. This is clear in terms of implementation and includes tools you can photocopy.
A good book for teachers looking for research that proves that differentiated instruction actually does work. I was very much a skeptic regarding differentiated instruction until I used this book in a graduate class; like most teachers, I had attended at least a dozen workshops and in-service sessions on differentiated instruction. Each workshop and in-service seemed less like my students the longer I attended them. This book allowed me to choose the pieces that I thought we could do in my class ...more
This book clearly describes backwards planning in teaching, planning with the end in mind. It links that to differentiated instruction. If you are not familiar with these concepts in teaching, this is a must-read. If you have been working with this already then it is a nice review. I didn't find a lot of brand-new insights in the book, rather the book gives some practical ways for actually implementing these important concepts. Not an easy task. You'll get as much out of the book as you're willi ...more
This book gives a framework for how to create lessons that ensure quality, differentiated learning in the classroom, using two educational frameworks: differentiated instruction and understanding by design. It is dry as hell, and has a ton of information to sort through, but I'm not sorry I was assigned to read it.
A very readable guide to incorporating differentiated instruction and UbD into academically diverse classrooms. Includes illustrative charts and appropriate case studies. This text would be an essential addition to a professional development collection.
Written by the experts. Lots of information. Great ideas. Not easy reading. Quite repetitive. Recommend for those who are already familiar with Differentiated Instruction and/or Understanding by Design (Backwards Design).
