Being able to differentiate instruction for students at various developmental levels, according to their strengths, needs, and interests is an important part of being an educator.

Write a 500-750 word rationale and reflection on developing instruction.
Include the following:
- Explain how your instructional choices in the lesson plan meet the needs of all students, and reflect on students’ levels of readiness for learning, based on the pre-assessment data.
- Describe the purpose and benefits of having specialized experts (e.g., special education teachers, instructional coaches) collaborate with teachers to develop lesson plans specific to the students in their classes.
- Explain how you will use this information and experience in your future professional practice.
Cite 3-5 peer-reviewed articles as research that support your choices.
