Differentiated Instruction Benefits All Students
- Students come into our classrooms and schools with different backgrounds, cultures and a wide range of cognitive abilities, assets and experiences. Sometimes the only thing students in a classroom have in common is their age!
- Fair does not always mean equal – sometimes we need to think “outside the box” so that we can meet the needs of our diverse learning population. In order to be fair to all students we must differentiate their learning AND our instruction.
