Differentiated instruction has received much attention as a key solution but seems challenging. The current study dealt with the usefulness of differentiated instruction and traditional-based pedagogy in the promotion of male and female learners reading comprehension in separate gender educational system. The purpose of this study was to systematically reflect upon the teaching practices, and to investigate the benefits and impact of this strategy.
