For reluctant writers, introduce novel or unexpected materials and supports. Try old typewriters, novelty or colored pencils, voice-activated software or story starters.

If you liked From Tutor Scripts to Talking Sticks, I have some fun news to share! I-along with my co-author, Sheila Danaher-have collected another 100 ideas for differentiating instruction in K-12 inclusive classrooms and assembled them into a second book. We certainly didn’t think there would be a follow-up text to Tutor Scripts, but we just kept finding ideas (and having teachers send us ideas) for great low-cost easy-to-implement curricular adaptations. So, we could not resist putting out one more volume. The new title, From Text Maps to Memory Caps, is out in October but you can pre-order on the Brookes Publishing site or on We have a lot of classroom games in this book, several ideas for using augmentative communication in inclusive classrooms, and many literacy supports that can support common core lessons. When the book is released in a few months, I will be blogging about a few of the ideas featured in the book, so stay tuned!
