Robert J. Marzano quickly and succinctly addresses the differentiated treatment that stems from inherent biases and suggests ways that teachers can overcome them. He outlines a four step procedure:
- Identify students for whom you have low expectations.
- Identify similarities in students.
- Identify differential treatment of low-expectancy students.
- Treat low-expectancy and high-expectancy students the same.
