Based on this knowledge, differentiated instruction applies anapproach to teaching and learning so that students have multiple options for taking ininformation and making sense of ideas. The model of differentiated instruction requiresteachers to be flexible in their approach to teaching and adjusting the curriculum andpresentation of information to learners rather than expecting students to modify themselvesfor the curriculum. Classroom teaching is a blend of whole-class, group and individualinstruction.
