S.E. von Fremd is an independent scholar, writer, and editor with a background in education, cultural studies, and dance. She performed with the Never Stop Moving Dance Company in Chicago under the direction of Reynaldo Martinez and taught creative dance and theater to children in the city and surrounding areas. Her interest in creativity and culture eventually led her to do a doctorate in performance studies at Northwestern University. This included a year's research in Uganda, where she focused on the role of popular theater and dance in reviving cultural identity and educating children and young people throughout the country. She has written several book reviews on African musical traditions, a monograph on the cultural legacy of Kenyan novelist Ngugi wa Thiong'o and Nigerian playwright Wole Soyinka, another monograph on refugees in Africa, and an article on the performing arts as a popular forum for education in Uganda. She has also given presentations on Uganda's creative artists under the reign of Idi Amin and on dance movements throughout the continent of Africa.

Whenever anyone asks me for advice on parenting and educating young children, I refer them, without hesitation, to Smutny and von Fremd. Their very special talent is in helping adults nurture and cherish the creativity and learning joy that is so intrinsic in young children. -- Susan Winebrenner, Author The authors teach us to teach better. They use teacher voices, classroom stories, and solid foundations to guide the reader's thinking. Practical examples and specific guidelines make the book very useful without resorting to templates or gimmicks! -- Carol Ann Tomlinson, Professor The authors have done a remarkable job! I found the five-step sequence and the journey analogy absolutely brilliant. Even more profound is their ability to show how standards and district requirements can still be met, yet in a more developmentally appropriate way. -- Patricia A. Phipps, Executive Director The authors build a strong case for WHY of differentiated instruction, and then go on to fill the pages with enticing examples of the HOW of differentiating instruction for each major subject area. Their presentation of lesson planning as a journey is a powerful metaphor that has the potential to transform classroom teaching! I loved the book! It was great fun! -- Sharon Easterling, Executive Director At last, a practical book that is tailored to the early years and focuses on the how to's of differentiating curriculum and instructional delivery. -- Jim Grant Wrapped around a telling metaphor of a learning journey, Smutny and von Fremd provide the tools and the templates for differentiation for learners. Rich in practical ideas, rigorous in its applications, this is a 'must-have' research-based resource for differentiation for the young child. -- Robin Fogarty, Professional Development Consultant "This book is a comprehensive guide for differentiating all aspects of the primary level curriculum. It includes many practical examples concerning how teachers should manage the differentiated classroom. These examples are supported by solid educational practice and the authors' extensive professional backgrounds as teachers and administrators." -- Gifted Education News, August-September 2004
