Differentiation is a method of teaching that recognizes that students learn in different ways. Carol Ann Tomlinson believes differentiation means giving students multiple options for taking in information. Author Laura Robb said "differentiating instruction means that you observe and understand the differences and similarities among students and use this information to plan instruction."

Here, we focus on a particular differentiated instructional strategy: Museum!

Students display (on the wall or on a table) their finished product, poster, project, etc. Half of the class stays with their work, ready to answer questions and share information. The other half of the class wanders around (as if in a museum) looking at the projects, asking questions, and listening to the information.
 Once adequate time is given, the two groups trade places and repeat the process.
