Differentiated Instruction Benefits All Students

 Sometimes the only thing students in a classroom have in common is their age! Students come into our classrooms and schools with different backgrounds and cultures. Their cognitive abilities, assets and experiences are just as wide ranging.

When one lesson resonates with one student but not with another, we owe it to students to offer the learning in many different approaches to help them receive using their strengths and abilities.

Fair does not always mean equal – sometimes we need to go an extra step for a student.  In order to be fair to all students we must differentiate their learning and our instruction.
