  • Knowledge of students’ progressions is critical to meeting students’ diverse needs.
  • Students need responsive and personalised instruction.
  • Teaching decisions should be based on evidence of students’ strengths and needs.
  • Teaching and learning sequence tasks need to have a clearly defined pedagogical rationale.
  • Teachers’ ongoing inquiry into the impact of their teaching decisions is essential for providing effective differentiated instruction.
  • Ongoing inquiry into underachievement is a key to schooling improvement.
  • Practice is informed by contemporary research and thinking.
