NEW YORK (December 22, 2008) – Glencoe/McGraw-Hill, the leading provider of print and digital educational materials for middle and secondary students, is helping California literature teachers easily and effectively differentiate instruction through its interactive worktexts, Read and Write.

"Teachers must acknowledge students' differences in background knowledge, skill level, and preferences to effectively differentiate instruction," said program consultant Doug Fisher, Ph.D., professor of language and literacy education at San Diego State University. "By providing rigorous content with appropriate instruction for varying levels, Read and Write helps teachers more easily target the specific needs of a variety of learners in one classroom."

Read and Write is a component of Glencoe Literature: California Treasures, a comprehensive collection of exceptional literature and engaging nonfiction with integrated skill development and targeted differentiated instruction for Grades 6-12.

Providing true differentiated instruction that is efficient to implement, Glencoe offers three versions of Read and Write worktexts to meet the individual learning needs of students ? on-level, approaching and English learners. Each Read and Write includes well-loved reading selections spanning various genres with scaffolded reading support.

Glencoe Literature: California Treasures is customized to both California's language arts content and English language development standards, and instruction is informed by ongoing assessment of each student's strengths and needs.
