Leading and Managing A Differentiated Classroom (Carol Ann Tomlinson & Marcia B. Imbeau) 1

Preface
Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead. (Louisa May Alcott)

Part 1
The teacher's overriding moral purpose is to meet the needs of students, even when it conflicts with personal preferences. (Lorna Earle)

In terms  of incorporating contemporary knowledge of how people learn into the classroom, experts make the analogy that we're settling for a Model-T Ford instead of drawing on 21st century automotive engineering.


Student differences matter and effective teachers attend to those differences thoughtfully and proactively.
