This study wanted to prove that using differentiated instruction in the classroom would improve students' comprehension and learning. It is obvious that it does. Differentiated instruction has so many wonderful ideas and strategies that teachers can, and have used. Teachers need to have an understanding of their students, and then teach in response to student readiness, interest, or learning profile. This undoubtedly takes extra time and a commitment from the classroom teacher, but studies have shown that it is definitely worth the extra effort. Students learn better when they are taught as the individual that they are, rather than the old fashioned lecture hall.
