Description: Differentiate your gifted classroom by designing experiences instead of writing lesson plans with Designing for Depth in the Classroom: A Framework for Purposeful Differentiation.

Addressing the specific needs of countless learners doesn’t have to be overwhelming and unsustainable! In her dynamic new book, Andi McNair guides readers through a fresh mindset and process for designing meaningful experiences that leave learners engaged, empowered, and motivated to move from surface-level learning to deep understanding. Chapters cover topics such as project-based learning, authentic engagement, supporting and encouraging learners in the classroom and beyond, and the many ways to provide depth, with space provided at the end of each chapter for reflection questions and key takeaways.

With practical strategies, advice, and examples imparted in a refreshing conversational tone, this valuable resource is required reading for all educators interested in challenging and exciting their students in a meaningful and manageable way.
