Literacy, differentiated instruction, student engagement and academic achievement continue to be hot topics for educators, parents, legislators, and government officials. Now I Get It! Differentiate, Engage, and Read for Deeper Meaning is a practical, easy to use resource for classroom teachers, literacy coaches, school administrators and post secondary instructors. Parents will also find the information helpful as they assist their children with homework and support for reading comprehension.

21st century educators want ideas that are hands-on and with applicability in all types of classrooms. This book provides both. The strategies included in the text have been carefully considered for ease of use, utility in terms of differentiation, and simplicity of format. Each has been evaluated according to Bloom’s Taxonomy and specific suggestions for differentiating and supporting with technology has been included. The book can be read cover to cover, ‘on the run’, or as a resource in response to a specific, expressed need by teaching staff.
Every teacher, no matter how many years of experience or what grade they teach, can use the comprehension, vocabulary, and study skill strategies from this book. It’s easy to use, effective, and fun for students and teachers! With the influx of technology, today’s students need multi-sensory activities to keep them focused and engaged. This book has a mirage of literacy activities to make learning difficult material enjoyable! It is similar to Judy’s first book I Don’t Get It! Helping Students Understand What They Read except it explains how to make technological adaptations for each lesson and gives suggestions related to differentiation. Both of these books have lead my students to find success and enjoyment in reading again!
