Differentiation of instruction in the classroom is usually inferred to mean, "adapt content so that it is more understandable by students that are academically challenged." This site, however, is designed to differentiate instruction for the "academically gifted student." 

Testing in the schools has been set to the lowest common denominator and , unfortunately, the instructional bar has been lowered accordingly.
