Why teachers should consider differentiated instruction

Neo LMS

While it’s definitely easier to treat students the same in the classroom — after all, there is but one teacher to 30 students (more or less) — the best teachers are those who understand that students are not the same. And act accordingly, by differentiating instruction to better meet their learning needs. The concept of differentiated instruction is nothing new. Differentiated instruction is anything but one-size-fits-all.

Finding Balance in Today's Classroom

A Principal's Reflections

Maybe the 45-minute commute had a little to do with it, but the main culprit was how I used available time in the classroom. Since I was not very open to risks and convinced that the most critical aspect of my job was to get through the curriculum, my sole focus was on direct instruction.
