Rigorous Standards + Differentiated Instruction + Student Engagement = Higher Student Achievement
I was hooked within the first 30 pages! Ideas were racing through my mind—I'm excited to blog about it and use it in the classroom. Applies to teachers of all ages—a lot of solid explanations for newbies but still full of resources that any teachers can use or modify. Any book that makes me think, and especially think about improving my practice, is definitely a worthwhile investment. Invest in yourself!
