Differentiation in Reading: Meeting the Needs of All Students
Richardson, Jamie W.
Differentiated instruction is a way to meet the instructional needs of all students. Students are met at their academic levels rather than given work that is above or below their level. Even though differentiation may appear to be something that is easily achieved, there are some who decide otherwise. Many educators are considered to be exemplary in their positions. They create interesting and innovating lessons that create a well-engaged environment. Even though these teachers are at the top of the list as superior educators, many still struggle with differentiating literacy instruction. Educators feel as if they are differentiating if they are using a particular instructional method. Even though a set format may be used, there is a concern to whether differentiation is actually being done. Based on the literature related to differentiating instruction in reading, it was discovered that educators are very much aware of the varying ability levels of students, but there is a need to see which strategies are working best for students.
