Schools today are filled with students who have diverse personal needs as well as a wide range of academic abilities. This situation creates a challenge as educators work to fulfill their responsibility of providing an equitable educational opportunity for all students. Many times, principals attempt to deal with this diversity of needs by taking the simplest and most direct route, but this is not always the best way to travel. If school leaders want to develop a more personalized classroom culture in their schools to help meet the needs of every student, a good starting point is encouraging and modeling the instructional practice of differentiation. This article presents three sets of questions which are adapted with permission from "Leading for Differentiation," an NASSP-sponsored event presented by Rick Wormeli in Spring 2008.
