Review. The graphic below describes the continuum of support that EL Education recommends be provided school-wide. Notice that the foundation for differentiated instruction is built upon engaging, relevant, and student-friendly learning targets that clearly define expectations for both the teacher and all of the students. A wonderful teaching method that creates learning experiences for students at their own ability levels is differentiation. Elementary school students are not bored with lessons and activities that are too easy for them. On the other hand, students are also not frustrated by learning material that is too difficult. Differentiation takes time, patience, and good classroom management skills.

Differentiation is a key part of effective teaching; structuring learning experiences to suit the needs of the individual child plays a major part in the quality of the education that child receives.   Differentiation is also important for the children exceeding expectation; the gifted and talented. You need to modify the curriculum appropriately to stretch and challenge them as well. I have worked intensively with pupils and staff in a language centre attached to a mainstream school for over 10 years.

Differentiated Planning: This aspect of teaching is probably the most difficult and the most time-consuming for every teacher.
