Wendy Conklin, M.A., is an educational consultant and award-winning author. A former teacher, Wendy now trains other teachers in staff development workshops across the country. She has authored and edited more than 50 educational books.
While in her first year of teaching, Wendy quickly became aware that she could not reach all her students with the curriculum that was handed to her. Some of her students struggled to keep up. Others moved ahead way too fast and needed more challenging work. All the students had unique interests. Instead of giving in to despair, she began to look for ways to appropriately challenge all her students so that they could master the important grade-level objectives. The strategies in this book represent the fruit of her discoveries.
