Reviews

"The most comprehensive text on learning styles and differentiated instruction I have read. Teachers will find strategies they can immediately implement to meet the diverse learning needs of students."

-- Mike Greenwood, District Teacher Leader

"I loved this book! It was so informative I couldn't put it down. Teachers--beginning, experienced, urban, suburban, rural, or private--will find examples and ideas that they can use immediately."

-- Sharon Jeffery, Teacher
"Offers a 'suitcase' filled with ideas to enhance any learning experience. The techniques offered range from simple modifications to more comprehensive restructuring of curriculum. There is something for everyone in this book." -- Amy M. Zais, Associate Principal
"Brilliant! An absolute gold mine for teachers. Each page delivers a nugget of insight, understanding, and guidance on professional applications of type theory for both easy and tough teaching situations." -- B. Bradley West, Professor
"Deftly illustrates how crucial the personality type and learning style of the teacher is to the learning environment in the classroom. The teacher emerges from this guide with a surer sense of self and how to help students achieve 'flow' in the classroom so they can work in their best mode while also expanding into new ones." -- Lyn Fairchild, Coordinator of Independent Learning
"Just the tool we need to help make the concepts come alive in the classroom, skillfully bridging the gap between theory and application with a writing style that is easy to read and engaging. The lesson plan examples can be used as stand-alone starting places for teaching teams who need specific examples to get started." -- Karen Zais, Founder and Education Consultant
"Sparkles with ideas for improving the learning experiences of students and teachers. Besides showing what an individual teacher might do to adapt to the learning needs of different kinds of students, Kise also discusses when and how teachers with different teaching styles might profitably collaborate. This book will enrich the practice of any teacher or administrator." -- Anne Niemiec, Executive Director
"This book would be useful in a professional learning community, either as an independent reading activity, in grade-level team meetings, or as a whole-school faculty study." -- Principal Magazine, May/June 2008
