You know that geometry is a math thing, right? You remember that much from school. You also probably remember that it has something to do with circles, squares, diameters, angles, and all those other terms that floated in (and probably right out of ) your head as you were cramming for all those geometry tests way back when. But your math teacher probably never told you that you'd actually use that stuff in real life – if he had, maybe you would have paid more attention! Well, don't fret. You're in the same boat as almost everyone else. Geometry has about a million (a rough estimate) uses in real life – for example, you may have some home improvement projects you want to tackle; you have to know how to cut the wood at certain angles to make them fit together. ( Bet you didn't realize that carpenters have to be experts at geometry as well!) With a basic knowledge of geometry, building some bookshelves for your kid's room becomes so much easier. Geometry For Dummies can give you that basic understanding of geometry, and you might actually have a little fun along the way. Written in a breezy, easy-to-understand, non-textbook-like style, this book helps you with all your geometrical dilemmas. In Geometry For Dummies, you'll find out about the following topics and more: Understanding lines and angles Working up a geometry proof All those funny shapes: circles, rectangles, triangles, and the ever versatile polygon Having your Pi and eating it, too Taking the next step into trigonometry Doing someone a solid: Exploring prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones, and spheres Top Ten list of cool careers that use geometry and tips for making geometry easier Appendices with formulas, theorems, and other helpful geometry resources So whatever your reason for wanting to learn geometry – a home improvement project, helping your kid with his or her homework, or just a fascination with funny shapes – Geometry For Dummies is just what you need to recall what you learned in school and put it to good use.

Although it can seem a daunting task to individualize learning for all students, this book provides specific "how-to" techniques to make it happen, equipping you with the tools you need to differentiate instruction for all students: general education, gifted and talented, challenged, or English Language Learners (ELL). Addressing the reader with an engaging personalized tone, expert Dr. Shellie Hipsky demystifies the process of differentiated instruction as you tour elementary school classrooms with diverse populations and observe research-based strategies that transform theory into practical differentiated instructional techniques for literacy and language arts skills. You will gain valuable insights from seasoned elementary teachers through real life concrete examples, find advice for implementing strategies in literacy-based classrooms, learn how to create an effective learning environment, and utilize appropriate instructional techniques based on students' abilities, learning profiles, and interests. Additionally, you will explore strategies to differentiate in the reading areas of emerging literacy skills, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency as well as writing, speaking, listening, and content area reading. Every chapter in the book includes specific illuminating classroom examples, questions for reflecting on the reading, active engagement ideas for further exploration of the topic, and conclusions. Strategies to simplify documentation, including the use of the Literacy and Language Arts Learning Skills Check Sheet, Differentiated Choice Chart, and a Portfolio Record Sheet, provide ways to organize important student information. A unique journal kept by an elementary teacher, whose classroom is visited in the text, rounds out the book as it demonstrates a year's worth of successful implementation of differentiation assessment and instruction. Differentiated Literacy and Language Arts Strategies for the Elementary Classroom focuses on the needs of pre-service teachers and yet it has ample strategies to positively impact the classrooms of current teachers.
