Integrating Differentiated Instruction and Understanding by Design by Tomlinson and McTighe

For three years, I have been living and breathing McTighe and Wiggins’ Understanding by Design curriculum plan. However, even though I know how to use this plan, I didn’t know the fundamentals. So I set off to read McTighe and Tomlinson’s Integrating Differentiated Instruction and Understanding by Design. I’m happy to report that it’s exactly what I needed.

This book gives a foundation for DI and UbD instruction, explains the theory and gives examples of practice. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on assessing students when in comes to Differentiated Instruction – how to assess everyone equally when they’re not equal at all, and they don’t need to be equal? That’s the great conundrum of teaching, isn’t it?
