Differentiation in education refers to tailoring instruction to meet individual needs, interests, and learning styles of students, with the goal of maximizing student learning and engagement (1). Differentiation allows educators to provide multiple pathways for students to learn the same material (2). By differentiating instruction, educators can help ensure that all students have access to challenging and meaningful learning experiences that are appropriate for their individual needs.
