Students differ in their learning approaches and abilities. On one hand, student differences in the classroom need to be compensated for in the interests of targeted instruction: Educators must be aware of factors influencing classroom diversity and respond with a variety of assignments, activities, approaches to student work, and evaluation methods for individual interests and skills. On the other hand, principles of differentiated instruction can contribute to enhancing the efficiency of various learning approaches and satisfactorily respond to the different learning styles of a diverse classroom.
