Differentiated Instruction for theMiddle School Math Teacher Activities and Strategies for an Inclusive Classroom Joan D'Amico and Kate Gallaway The middle school mathematics classroom is a unique learning environment. The mathematical content becomes more complex, requiring students to remember facts and formulas, while at the same time using them to solve problems. It can be very tricky to teach a class filled with students of varying learning styles and skill levels. Differentiated Instruction for the Middle School Math Teacher is a practical and easy-to-use resource for teaching a standards-based math curriculum to all learners. It gives you effective ways to present math concepts, shows how to provide opportunities for guided practice, and offers ideas for modifying the material to provide access to the same content standard for all students in the inclusive classroom. This book also contains key strategies for collaborating with other professionals, suggestions for involving the students' families by tying math concepts to students' everyday lives, and valuable assessment strategies. The lessons in the book cover middle school math topics correlated to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Math, ranging from numbers and operations to problem solving and reasoning. Each lesson includes: Instructions for presenting the lesson to the whole class Worksheets designed to help review and reinforce theconcepts presented in each lesson A section on how to adapt the lesson for the inclusiveclassroom, including descriptions of different stations for different learners A home-school connection with family-based everydaymath activities Suggestions for how to assess students' grasp of the concepts presented in the lesson Differentiated Instruction for the Middle School Math Teacher is an essential resource for teachers in?inclusive classrooms who are seeking new ways to reach all of their students.

Detailed lesson plans outline easy-to-follow procedures." -Dr. Care Terkelson, associate professor, Chapman University, Monterey, California "This is an all-inclusive resource for the inclusive math classroom. Worksheets and instructional strategies are tied together to offer quick preparation for teachers and success for all students.
