Online Submission, Paper prepared for The Urban Education Conference (Jackson, MS, Nov 18-20, 2013)
Students enter classrooms with different abilities, learning styles, and personalities. Educators are mandated to see that all students meet the standards of their district and state. Through the use of differentiated instructional strategies, teachers can meet the varying needs of all students and help them to meet and exceed the established standards (Levy, 2008). Differentiated teaching provides paths to learning so that the classroom becomes a "good fit" for varied learners (Adami, 2004). In this manuscript, the authors give the theory behind differentiated instruction to enhance learning and provide practical examples of how to differentiate content, process, and product for students.
