What is Differentiated Instruction? 

Adjusting the curriculum, teaching strategies, and classroom environment to better meet the needs of all students.  In a differentiated classroom:

  • Student differences shape the curriculum
  • Pre-assessment is typical and frequent
  • Multiple options for students are offered
  • There is variable pacing
  • Varied grading criteria are used
  • Individual efforts and growth are honored
