Thank you to Jim Chapman, Carolyn's husband, for his ceaseless support, encouragement and ideas to keep us on track. Thank you to General Lee, Rita's golden retriever for his patience. We appreciate our families, friends, and colleagues who inspired and urged us on through the highs and lows of our endeavors.
A special thank you to Dr. James L. Herman, Tennessee's representative to the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career (PARCC) and a trainer in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Dr. Herman endorsed our initial ideas for this guide and confirmed our belief that teachers must differentiate to teach the standards to all students.
We extend our gratitude to everyone at Corwin. Jessica Allan, the senior acquisitions editor, believed in our preliminary objectives, added to them and supported us throughout this project. Meg Granger, the copy editor, spent endless hours interpreting our notes and using her knowledge and skills to put it all together. We deeply appreciate the extraordinary expertise of Libby Larson, senior project editor. Her extensive organizational skills and attention to details guided the final stages of our book.
Thank you to educators who use our books as guides to differentiate instruction. Through the years they validated our strategies and activities as practical tools and techniques. Their encouraging and inspiring words gave us the impetus to create this resource for classroom teachers.[Page viii]
