The Promise: Closing the Achievement Gap Using Differentiated Instruction by K. J. Coar Overall Edd

African American students continue to score lower than European American students on standardized measures of achievement. Differentiated instruction could be a solution. Theories of differentiated instruction suggest that, by meeting each student at his or her readiness level, the chance for success is increased. Differentiated instruction can be used to reach diverse students. Implications for positive social change include the use of differentiated instruction to help close the gap in reading achievement and improve reading achievement for all learners.
