5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource 20 April 2013
By Valencia - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent resource for any school. Provides practical and theoretical approaches to understanding how to impact learning for all students. The text analyzes two extremely different schools and tracks the process under second-order change.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for students who know little about the subject 4 Aug. 2011
By Bo - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is probably a very good book for the school principals and administrators if they want to implentment the program and want to know how to do it exactly. It is NOT a good book for students who have no background on the subject and want to know more about what differentiation is. This book never clearly define what differentiation is. It is very confusing to students. It goes right into implementation. Points are not clearly lay out (author used a lot of paragarphs and chapters to explain what the schools did). 3 out of 4 students in my small group hated this book. It includes a lot of sample worksheet for school administrators.

I borrowed the previous edition to take a look and found that it is a much better book for education majors. It talks about things in teachers' perspective. This edition talks thing in school administrators' perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any school administrator or thinker on educational studies 7 Oct. 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
A school in Baltimore and a school in Seattle are two entirely different things, and "The Differentiated School: Making Revolutionary Changes in Teaching and Learning" realizes that. Advising educators to approach learning with their school's unique traits and student culture in mind, it grants ideas and tips for bettering one's schools to make for a more positive environment for all involved, be they students or staff. With tips on facilitating school leadership, "The Differentiated School" is a must for any school administrator or thinker on educational studies.
