Popular workshop presenter and trainer Martha Kaufeldt has done it again! This first book in her new series, Beginning with the Brain, is what every busy teacher has been waiting for. With an excellent concise summary of recent brain research and its implications for educators, the rationale is clear for how teachers should begin to differentiate instruction on a daily basis. Using a fishing metaphor which will guarantee a broad appeal, this book offers teachers a variety of strategies to pack into their personal 'tackle boxes'! Classroom examples from all grade levels provide suggestions for how teachers can orchestrate powerful learning experiences in response to every student?s unique needs.

Fill your strategy tackle box with practical ways to vary the six key components of differentiation:
  • physical and social environment
  • content and its presentation
  • processing for learning
  • products to demonstrate learning
Everything you need is here, from how to set up student profiles and establish groups to how to collect on-going feedback and document progress. Activities that engage reluctant learners, strategies that will help for children with special needs as well as complex tasks to inspire the more able and talented students have been included in this practical user-friendly book.

Martha Kaufeldt is a full-time trainer and educational consultant throughout North America. She has taught at all grade levels, and served as a district level coordinator and staff developer. She is the creator of the award-winning Concept in a Day (book and video) program which demonstrates how educators can maximize learning using a brain-compatible immersion strategy.
