Differentiated Instruction is composed of many Pieces.
Why is Differentiated Instruction such a hot topic?
It is THE bridge from Content to Learner.


  • Educators need many Pieces - different kinds of instructional and assessment strategies and a variety of differentiated resources that address the wide range of knowledge, ability levels, interests, and learning styles students bring to the classroom.
  • Teachers require a variety of research-based instructional strategies and resources for all students in order to meet benchmarks, Common Core standards, and to provide interventions, enrichment, and acceleration.
  • Strategies and materials must support the accountability component of educating students.


What are Research-Based Differentiation Strategies?
Accountable, teacher-tested instructional strategies that address a variety of student characteristics and promote student achievement.


  • One of the Pieces is Research-Based Instructional Strategies. These strategies differentiate Content, Process, and/or Product.
  • After pre-testing, Content may be remediated, accelerated, or enriched using basic or more complex resources. Examples of strategies are acceleration, compacting, flexible pacing, and introduction of more complex concepts.
  • Process is differentiated by addressing different learning styles, levels of thinking, and kinds of thinking. The content is not different. Teachers may use Bloom’s Taxonomy, Higher Level Questioning, CPS, Williams’ Taxonomy, etc.
  • Product is differentiated by addressing different learning styles and by providing choice in variety and different levels of complexity of products.
