Differentiating Instruction in the Regular Classroom: How to Reach and Teach All Learners, Grades 3-12
This site is a review of Diane Heacox's book. I heard Diane speak at NAGC and was impressed that she addressed the needs of secondary teachers in Differentiating Curriculum.  We have copies of the book that you can check out in the GT library at the Support Services office.
Ability Grouping in Elementary Schools
"The heterogeneous grouping of Cooperative Learning is good in some cases but not all."
Kathie Nunley's Layered Curriculum

B Layer:

A Layer:
Critical Thinking and Analysis.
