The Differentiation Smart Reference Guide from J Taylor Education is a comprehensive and easy-to-use resource for teachers. The concept of differentiation (tailoring the core curriculum to the unique needs of students) is key in cultivating meaningful lessons. This multi-faceted approach to teaching relies on the use of both the Depth & Complexity Icons and Content Imperative Icons. The Smart Reference Guide explains the Icons and so much more. This thorough resource gives teachers 22 flip pages (in color and laminated) which lead the reader through progressively more advanced steps in the process of differentiation. It begins with explaining what it means to differentiate and then moves on to setting the stage, utilizing high-level thinking skills, incorporating Depth & Complexity, becoming an expert, teaching with universal concepts, and planning the best ways to deliver instruction. There are a number of content and grade specific examples throughout the pages. Teachers will find themselves continually referring to this reference guide as their students exceed standards throughout the school year.
