With appropriate planning, teachers can differentiate instruction to effectively meet the needs of a variety of learners. This resource includes a lesson plan template that illustrates how instruction can be differentiated at the planning stage. Additionally, the lesson demonstrates how a single lesson can effectively meet the instructional needs of learners who are working well above or below grade expectations. This type of lesson planning not only structures teaching
to ensure learning, but also helps to meet the needs
of the diverse groups of students who comprise today’s classrooms.
