Whereas some pedagogical approaches will be more effective with particular learners, stimulating and engaging teaching through individuals' learning styles is effective for all students. The effectiveness of both differentiation and learning styles is confirmed by research and is critical for teachers who work with at-risk students. This book provides a guide for educators world-wide to differentiate through a organized approach to learning. -- Carolyn Brunner, director of International Graduate Programs for Educators at Buffalo State, SUNY Dunn worked to identify research-based methods of instruction in education long before it became the mandate to employ such interventions. This compilation of years of well-researched strategies advocated by Dunn and Honigsfeld is a valuable resource for educators at all levels. -- Armin Paul Thies, associate clinical professor of the Child Study Center, Yale University As schools engage in the strategic work of closing the achievement gap for their at-risk populations, differentiation is the most important tool. Principals and teachers committed to supporting the needs of diverse learners should read this book. It is filled with practical resources and strategies for enhancing the delivery of instruction and increase results for nontraditional learners! -- Theresa Axford, principal of Sugarloaf School, a Demonstration School of Excellence in Florida Differentiated Instruction for At-Risk Students is a superb text that guides educators to use the learning styles of different kinds of at-risk students to help them to be successful. The instructional approaches provided are realistic and responsive to at-risk students' learning styles. Guidelines for implementing each strategy with graphics and instruments. are also provided. Here is an easy to use, realistic guide that can make a different for our lowest achieving students. -- Marcia Knoll, professor of education at Hunter College Dunn and Honigsfeld have done an outstanding job synthesizing over 850 research studies and translating them into hands-on learning styles strategies for use with at-risk K-12 students.
