What is differentiation? It’s the teaching adaptations that provide a wide range of students entry points to learning. It refers to the options given to students to make the curriculum engaging and appropriate for their level. Differentiation is helpful for both students who are struggling and students who are advanced.
Some forms of differentiation in our curriculum are explicit, for example “basic” versus “challenging” problems. However, there are many creative ways to approach differentiation and get what you need from the curriculum.
