Featuring Nationally Acclaimed Speaker Rhonda Bondie, PhD.

Rhonda Bondie is lecturer on education in several programs at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Rhonda began teaching as an artist-in-residence and then spent over 20 years in urban public schools as both a special and general educator. Throughout her career, she has focused on ensuring all learners are valued, engaged, and stretched in inclusive classrooms. The result of her research on inclusive teaching and years of experience is the book published by Routledge, Differentiated Instruction Made Practice: Engaging the Extremes through Classroom Routines.  In addition to the book, educators from around the world are furthering their approach to differentiated instruction through HGSE Programs in Professional Education’s online course Differentiated Instruction Made Practical. The book and the online course are based-on the teacher-decision making framework, All Learners Learning Every Day collaboratively developed with Akane Zusho. Rhonda has provided workshops and coaching to teachers in eight countries and spends time each week with students in inclusive K-12 classrooms, adults learning English as a New Langauge, and supporting math and science teachers. She maintains these websites for teachers, all-ed.org and projectreachonline.org.
