Curriculum Differentiation

Differentiation is the process of modifying curricula and teaching strategies to accommodate a diverse population of students with varying levels of ability, socioeconomic status, social-emotional disposition, and interests. Teachers make adjustments to curriculum complexity using Blooms Taxonomy and use various instructional practices, regrouping strategies, curriculum design models and teaching methods. The first step in the "differentiation process" is to identify, which learner requires a "differentiated curriculum" and why?

Compacting allows students to challenge portions of the curriculum before instruction. If high levels of mastery are determined, more appropriate challenges can be provided through acceleration or enrichment. See more about "Compacting, Enrichment, and Acceleration" in the footer section.
