What is Differentiated Instruction?

A teacher can vary the content, process, environment or product for an individual or small group in order to differentiate instruction.




Content refers to what is taught. For eg: the curriculum or the lesson plan devised by the teacher.

Process refers to how the content is taught. For eg: the method of instruction employed by the teacher.

Environment refers to where the content is taught. For eg: the classroom that is set up by the teacher.

Product refers to how the learning is assessed. For eg: the modes of assessments used by the teacher.
