Emily Pullman –
This book has opened my eyes to many new ways to engage my students, regardless of their learning level. I love the explanations of each lesson type, and all of the examples make it much easier to apply these lesson types to my own lesson plans! This book is a must-have for every teacher who differentiates in his/her classroom!
