Today we know so much more about how students learn and that the method of "one size fits all" in education no longer meets the needs of all of our students. In order to reach the multitude of learners we have in the classroom, teachers need to think about and implement differentiation strategies. Differentiating instruction means that you observe and understand the differences and similarities among students and use this information to plan instruction. In this module, you will see specific differentiation strategies that work to accommodate students of various levels of ability and prior knowledge. These strategies can by directly applied to your science classroom and will help you in planning future lesson and units.
