This exciting new book is just what is needed today! It will help new teachers, as well as those with many years’ experience, reach students in a time-efficient manner. New ideas are fine. But if one doesn’t have the time to implement them, they are not going to happen.

What makes So All Can Learn so relevant is that it gives the information, as well as the encouragement and resources, to create differentiated lessons today! It also shows why student ownership is essential as well as giving idea

The keyword in the tile of this book is “practical.” Too often books about differentiating instruction talk about the importance of differentiating for student needs but give little direction to teachers and parents in what differentiation really looks like or how to actually implement differentiated instructional strategies. John’s book helps to bridge this gap. Throughout So All Can Learn: A Practical Guide for Differentiation there are real classroom examples of how teachers are doing the hea ...more

There is lots to like about John McCarthy's excellent new book on differentiating instruction, but there are two parts I especially love. As an advocate of teaching to the whole child, I am especially impressed that John has included the engagement aspect of instruction. Student achievement may be the goal, but an important avenue in meeting that objective is inspiring and honoring students' personal passions. I also love how John makes the book itself a tool of differentiation for teachers. The ...more
