- "Packed full of prompts, activities, and practical ideas, this accessible and realistic guide provides teachers with a rich portfolio of strategies to ensure inclusion, and promote the learning of SEN pupils in the mainstream classroom. Unpacking SEN, demystifying jargon and clarifying policy and good practice, Effective Differentiation encourages its reader to take a pro-active approach to developing knowledge and skills in relation to SEND. Chapters address the challenges involved in successfully differentiating teaching to meet the diverse needs of individual children, and translate current research and policy into easy-to-understand concepts, integrating these into a framework for practical application. Taking self-evaluation as a starting point, the reader is invited to think, reflect, understand, and finally - do! The perfect aid for the busy teacher, each chapter contains checklists and photocopiable tables which readers can use to record and track their own progress"--Includes bibliographical references.What do I know about special educational needs and inclusive teaching? -- What about a baseline? -- How do I identify learners with SEND? -- What are core deficits? -- What is multi-sensory teaching? -- Who are Dr. Gopta and Mr. Chuffi? -- How can I work most effectively with teaching assistants? -- How do I share good practice? -- How do I implement change?
