Great article, love the cooking analogy. Using data, formative assessment, and differentiated instruction can really transform a classroom. I've been blogging about using differentiated instruction and its results:

I just read your piece on differentiation and I love what you did with your math lesson. Yes, you are right, differentiation comes in many different forms. You are also correct in saying that differentiation needs to happen in all classrooms, which is exactly why I chose to examine how all education really is special in this piece. Thanks so much for reading Matt!

This is a good launching point for people who are learning to differentiate. However I would caution that differentiation does not have to be so obvious - there are subtle ways to differentiate for a whole class (not that there's anything wrong with what's described here, just that it isn't the only way). Also, though the title alludes to special education, differentiation is not specific to special ed. It needs to happen in all classrooms.

Just want to share another way differentiation can look: http://photomatt7.wordpress.com/2011/12/03/differentiation-not-as-bad-as...
