"Thousand, Villa, and Nevin take three very big ideas in education—Universal Design, Collaboration, and Differentiated Instruction—and combine them in a novel and engaging way. And they practice what they preach – the information and examples speak to someone just beginning to differentiate instruction as well as the expert who wants to further refine his or her craft."

—Douglas Fisher, Professor

San Diego State University


"The extensive emphasis on technology, case studies, and lesson plans throughout the book provide a rich resource to the readers of this exciting text. Administrators, university instructors, and staff developers will find this a valuable tool to support their students and colleagues on their differentiation journey."

—Mary Falvey, Retired Dean and Professor Emeritus
