Abstract

Instruction is created for learners. Without having target learners in mind, we will not be able to create effective or valid instruction. However, students in one class could vary at their entry levels and other aspects. How can we create instruction to meet all students' needs in one class? This paper discusses effective instructional strategies that meet the needs of students at various entry levels in a fundamental computer technology class through analyzing data collected in two consecutive years. Learning theories that support those instructional strategies are also discussed.
