  • 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.

  • Practice is informed by contemporary research and thinking.
