Differentiating Instruction for Students With Learning Disabilities (Multimedia Kit)
A Multimedia Kit for Professional Development

Second Edition


56 pages | Corwin
Designed around the updated edition of the best-selling book Differentiating Instruction for Students With Learning Disabilities, this comprehensive multimedia kit offers staff developers print and visual tools to demonstrate effective differentiated and brain-compatible teaching methods for students with learning disabilities, at-risk students, or youngsters who may have learning difficulties. Facilitators will be able to lead discussions on how to:

Support learners through flexible, practical lessons

Improve students' skills in reading comprehension, language arts, and math

Use metacognitive and scaffolded learning techniques such as webbing, cubing, and tiering

Enhance social skills through group projects, role play, and practical peer-tutoring systems

Highlighting new information on topics ranging from the reauthorization of IDEA 2004 and Response to Intervention to brain research, reading instruction, and universal design for learning, this revised multimedia resource contains:

The research-based, updated edition of the companion book, Differentiating Instruction for Students With Learning Disabilities, providing the foundational framework for individualized instruction

A 42-minute, content-rich VHS video featuring William N. Bender with elementary, middle, and high school master teachers who use a variety of differentiated strategies to engage students with a wide range of abilities

A companion DVD with navigational menus and bullets for easy stop-and-search control of the video content

A step-by-step Facilitator's Guide that connects the core content of the book to both the video and DVD and includes video/DVD segment prompts, workshop outlines, extended workshop activities, discussion questions, and key points
