Differentiated Literacy Strategies K-6

For Student Growth and Achievement in Grades K-6

By: Gayle H. Gregory and Lin Kuzmich. 2004

Differentiated Literacy Strategies for Student Growth and Achievement in Grades K-6 is the resource that gives teachers an instructional and assessment framework designed to promote the multiple competencies their learners need: functional literacy for phonics, spelling, and reading; content-area literacy for vocabulary, concept attainment, and comprehension; technological literacy for information searching, evaluation, and synthesis; and innovative literacy for creativity, growth, and life-long learning.
With a focus on research-based, data-driven, and differentiated strategies, noted authors Gayle Gregory and Lin Kuzmich offer teachers step-by-step guides to:

  • Pre-assessing diverse learners for literacy skills, competencies, learning styles, and learning gaps
  • Implementing a broad array of high-payoff and developmentally appropriate strategies to move all students to the next stage in their literacy learning
  • Creating units, lessons, and adjustable assignments that address all four competencies in literacy learning in the differentiated classroom.

With more than 100 planning models, matrixes, rubrics, and checklists included, this book is the ideal resource for all elementary teachers who want to close the achievement gap for emerging learners and insure the growth and development of all learners
