Have you ever used differentiated instruction, and if so how?

Sample Answer: Yes, I have. Differentiated instruction can be wonderful for both gifted children and children who are struggling with a particular concept. For the gifted student, differentiated instruction allows them to be challenged by material that is at a higher level than their classmates. For the struggling student, allowing the student to revisit particular concepts allows them to catch up with their grade level.

Tip: Many schools and school districts are promoting the ideal of differentiated instruction because it allows for the student to work at their level rather than teaching from a perspective that all kids in a particular grade are actually on the same level. Showing that you understand the concept of differentiated instruction is valuable when interviewing in these districts.
