    Online mini-modules are available for educators who wish to explore introductory-level material related to the four elements of differentiated instruction: learning environment, content, product, and process. These modules may be used by individual educators on a self-paced basis. Each module is independent of the other modules.

    ...
    Accelerating instruction benefits learners who do well learning at a fast pace. For example, some students with special needs work well with shorter, intense periods of instruction interwoven throughout the day. For some advanced the pacing acceleration could be reflected in either the completion of grade level course work in less time (that is a one-year course completed in a semester) or the advancement of a learner from their grade-level standards to the subsequent grade-level content.
    Decelerating instruction provides more time to interact with the content or lengthier time to practice skills. For students experiencing difficulty in an academic discipline, the same content might be extended over a period of time for additional reinforcement of challenging concepts. Planning for extra time to master content can aid English learners who may need additional time for processing linguistic aspects associated with the content.

    Examples:
    The following example shows deceleration for the first group and accelaeration for the second group.
