From the Paper:

"The content is the topic that will be taught while the process is how the curriculum will be planned and implemented and how students will be grouped or if they will be expected to perform individually. The product is the evaluation process to assess the skill level of the students. In order for differentiated instruction to be successful all three elements of curriculum must be present. In order for these three elements to be present in the curriculum the teacher and differential instruction to be successful there must first be a pre-assessment process and the assessor must first take into consideration state and local curriculum requirements as well as the individual learning abilities of the student, interest, experiences, and abilities.
"When developing differential curriculum strategies for the third grade students the instructor must assess the strengths and learning needs of the student before developing the curriculum. When developing the content of the differentiated instruction for the third grade student the instructor must decide what and how the information will be given to the student. The instructor can plan to have students read, write, or actively participate in the learning process and develop the steps that will be used to apply this information."
