Some students are visual learners; others may be kinesthetic, analytical, mathematical, musical, or a combination of several categories. How can art teachers hope to reach each one?
In this book, Heather Fountain explores the origins of Differentiated Instruction and provides detailed explanations of the benefits of this well-researched approach to teaching. Using clear, direct language and examples from real classrooms and her own considerable experience, the author guides readers through the necessary background, into curriculum development and implementation, and right through to making DI a resounding success, both in the art classroom and in the wider school community.
