Adolescent Literacy and Differentiated Instruction

In Adolescent Literacy and Differentiated Instruction, Barbara King-Shaver and Alyce Hunter summon the latest research and share effective, essential differentiation practices. With more than 30 replicable models and practical ideas for managing differentiated classrooms, King-Shaver and Hunter help you:

  • assess students’ individual needs, interests, and learning styles
  • turn assessment into doable plans for targeted instruction
  • implement dynamic differentiation strategies such as stations, flexible grouping, choice, and anchor activities.

Drawing on NCTE’s guidelines for promoting adolescent literacy, King-Shaver and Hunter offer suggestions for teaching not only reading, writing, listening, and speaking but also viewing multimedia texts and engaging with digital literacy. 

Read Adolescent Literacy and Differentiated Instruction, use its study guide with colleagues, and discover that with adolescent literacy, the best way to make a difference is by embracing difference.
