Differentiated Instruction

In teaching reading, one size does not fit all. Today's schools serve children from a variety of families and backgrounds, with a variety of learning strengths and needs. Differentiated instruction is a flexible and individual approach to instruction. When a teacher reaches out to an individual or small group and varies her teaching to create the best learning experience possible, that teacher is differentiating instruction. It's not easy, but it is critical for success.
