Book Chapter Review

Introduction
I chose the article entitled “Meeting National Standards with Integrated Curriculum, Differentiated Learning” by author Aldene Fredenburg (2006). According to Fredenburg (2006), with the “No Child Left Behind” Act schools are focusing mainly on students passing the states standardized test rather than catering to the different needs of the students. The author further states that schools can use many non-traditional methods and child-friendly techniques that will help diverse students meet their learning standards. I chose this article to learn more about differentiated learning and how to cater to the diverse intelligences I faced on a daily basis within my classroom. This ...view middle of the document...

According to the article, dedicated teachers for years have known about and used the multiple intelligences theory in their classrooms; these teachers have structured their teaching methods to cater to children functioning at different developmental and intellectual levels. Fredenburg (2006) states that in recent years, “the combination of multiple intelligences theory and individualized learning opportunities have been formalized as differentiated learning”.
The author further highlighted that differentiated learning allows for specific instruction that will provide students with the fundamentals needed to meet state and national requirements while catering to learners at all levels. In closing, Fredenburg (2006) emphasized that the “No Child Left Behind” Act does not have to result in rigid curriculum for our children, but schools can use many creative and non-traditional techniques that will help students of all ages meet learning standards while maintaining their carefree, fun-loving kid status.
Review and Evaluation
Aldene Fredenburg is a writer and editor of numerous publishing feature stories and informational articles for over thirty years. This article provides a comprehensive coverage on the insight on the foundation of differentiated instruction as well as ways in which schools can meet the needs of the “No child left behind” Act in a creative way while catering to the learning styles and need for each student. The information given was very informative, straight forward, current and applicable to the Jamaican Education System in meeting the need of the numerous standardized tests that students are engaged in at the different level throughout their educational journey.
