    Chapter 11, written entirely and only by Carol Ann Tomlinson, is the meat of this book, sharing a research-based case study of a middle school which thought they were differentiating, but really weren't. The 18-month study revealed misconceptions and obstructions scarily similar to my own experience. The conclusions: "gifted" students should be called "advanced" and are being neglected by current education systems; collaboration between "regular" and "advanced" education must be intentionally developed; there is a huge misunderstanding about what differentiation actually is, resulting in teachers thinking they are doing it when they really aren't; long-term professional development and modeling is required to implement true differentiation which successfully meets the needs of all learners.
