If you’ve been in education for any amount of time I’m sure you’re familiar with the term differentiation. Simply put, differentiation is the art of taking a teaching concept and adjusting to suit a variety of student needs.  

It sounds simple enough, but quality differentiation is no easy task especially considering that every classroom is filled with students that possess a huge range of abilities across all areas of learning.
