Differentiating Textbooks is the next logical—and practical—step toward improving your students' ability to read, comprehend, and retain what they are taught in content-area textbooks. Find out how to motivate your students as they are confronted with text which is generally written in a less-than-engaging expository style. This helpful guide shows you how to teach the child, not the textbook, and as with differentiated instruction, you will soon discover that this approach is "just part of good teaching."
