This is not what we are talking about when we talk about differentiation — this is one teacher tutoring/teaching students in turns.

If I have nine students at different grade levels, it is about assessing their needs and securing/making the curriculum for that age and ability.

Differentiation is taking the same subject matter and making accessible and challenging to 30 students of the same age.
