Abstract

Many students suffer from inappropriate pacing and differentiation strategies in high school classrooms. The effect of inappropriate pacing is decreased motivation, interest, and may even be correlated to decreasing graduation rates. English teachers can combat these issues by increasing students’ interest and motivation through incorporating a two-system method that uses both pacing and differentiation strategies to decrease direct instruction time. It will to help students reach their full potential. The purpose of the project is to create standard-based curriculum with purposeful pacing and differentiation approaches that seek to increase motivation, engagement, and achievement.
