What if AP classrooms are not actually geared toward meeting the needs of gifted students? Differentiation is the key to engaging students across the learning spectrum, especially in the AP classroom; but many AP teachers avoid differentiating because they have false beliefs about how to use it, and how it can benefit their advanced learners.

- Pre-AP and AP classes are already leveled and do not require differentiation
- Differentiation is meant to close performance gaps for struggling learners (or specifically for SPED classes)
