Calls for teaching practices to be tailored


When you were in high school, did you ever wonder how your teacher catered for your ability level whilst also assisting your peers? 

The Grattan Institute conducted a study on 3000 Victorian and Tasmanian students and found that in Year Eight mathematics there can be as many as eight years level difference between the top and bottom students. 

Joshua Ryan spoke to co-author of the study, Pete Goss, and teacher Matilda Myers about what should be done to make the classroom a more productive learning space.
