Why Differentiate?
Students come to our classrooms with a wide variety of abilities, interests, and learning styles.  Differentiation allows teachers to tailor instruction for individual differences to maximize learning.  Teachers who actively plan for differences in readiness, interest, and learning profiles improve student engagement and achievement.
