LOS ANGELES, CA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Universal Publishers today announced the publication of “Success Education: Differentiated Curriculum Strategies for ESL and Learning Disabled Students” (ISBN 1-58112-498-8), by Steve P. Jefferson, Ed. D. and Bettye Sweet, M.S., a book filled with “reality based” classroom strategies that can create a positive learning environment for today’s learners.

Unlike a one-size-fits-all curriculum where all students are expected to learn the same materials, in the same way, in the same amount of time, differentiated instruction provides options. This book uses an array of instructional strategies, including multiple texts and supplementary materials, reality learning games, group investigations, and flexible evaluation.

In addition, Dr. Jefferson and Ms. Sweet’s new book provides a variety of lesson plans on differentiated instruction that will make any teacher’s life easier. This book is written to help both new and veteran teachers make classroom lessons engaging and fun again.
