Differentiation That Really Works: Science provides time-saving tips and strategies from real teachers who teach science in grades 6–12. These teachers not only developed the materials and used them in their own classes, but they also provided useful feedback and comments about the activities. The strategies included in the book are tiered lessons, cubing, graphic organizers, exit cards, learning contracts, and choice boards. Every strategy includes directions and offers opportunities for differentiation.

Review by: Ann Rubino, NSTA Recommends - February 3, 2012
This is an intensely practical work for the many teachers who want to differentiate the lessons in their 6 through 12 classrooms. Feeling the usual pressures of limited time and testing, they are often frustrated in their attempts to accommodate abilities and learning styles. Juggling the varied needs of their several groups of students becomes so unwieldy that they often give it up. Adams and Pierce use their experiences as teachers of gifted students, and later, teachers of teachers, to craft strategies and templates that are clear and usable. Many teachers they have coached contributed lesson samples and techniques, showing the techniques in practice.
