"The authors of Differentiated Instruction for the Middle School Language Arts Teacher understand that the starting point for effective teaching is not where the book starts or where the last teacher left off, but where the students are. This book provides the teacher with engaging strategies to support diverse learners in the classroom. The approaches can be adapted and applied across the curriculum and give the teacher a valuable toolbox to meet different needs and learning styles. The simple, easy-to-understand explanations give great insights into the how's and why's of making accommodations—plus the techniques can fit into any school budget!"
—Rosemarie Armstrong, World Language Coordinator, Monroe Township, New Jersey

Varying needs are carefully accommodated through the clear directions, pre-teaching, templates aligned with expectations, and sentence prompts for the less secure writers. Advance d learners are offered challenges, and opportunities to involve parents are provided. This book will be a distinct asset to teachers looking for examples of best practice."
—Edmund Gross, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Carmel Unified School District, California
