Differentiation

These resources may be useful for differentiating programming for students.

Differentiation defined: “a process to approach teaching and learning for students of differing abilities in the same class. The intent is to maximize each student’s growth and individual success by meeting each student where he or she is … rather than expecting students to modify themselves for the curriculum.” (Hall, 2002)
