The integration of students' prior knowledge, preferred learning styles, & curiosities is the most important factor when differentiating instruction for every student. Writing high school science curriculum that incorporates different learning styles, different levels of prior knowledge, student interest, and the Common Core and NGSS standards is very difficult. Students who were formerly bored with biology may once again become interested in class, with student questions and curiosity driving their learning. When students are interested in a class, they earn a better grade, which, in turn, leads to higher self-esteem and a greater feeling of success. The student-teacher relationship improves when students are successful and take an active role in participation.
