The Reading Lady

The Reading Lady is the website of Laura Krum, a NYC nationally board certified teacher. She has some really great materials, including a very informative article on Differentiated Instruction. The article highlights 4 good examples of how to differentiate content in the classroom:

  • Using reading material at varying readability levels; putting text materials on tape.
  • Using spelling or vocabulary lists at readiness levels of students.
  • Presenting ideas through both auditory and visual means; Using reading buddies
  • Meeting with small groups to re-teach an idea or skill for struggling learners, or to extend the thinking or skills of advanced learners.

There are many other great resources including Reading Comprehension Posters and Author Studies. – Melissa

    Hi,

    I just found your blog and want to thank you for all the great resources — and the head’s up about the Reading Lady blog, too!

    Here’ another resource I am currently using to teach reading in my classroom that helped me tremendously this school year: Differentiating Reading Instruction by Laura Robb. While geared for Grade 4 and up, any teacher can easily apply her strategies, lessons, assessment tips, and class management ideas in their own classrooms, no matter what grade they teach. The students’ work and conversations included made the book come alive for me! Her book also reflects how much she cares about teachers, parents and students.

    Hope some other teachers get as much from this one book as I did.

    Cheers,
    Linda
