Today's classroom teachers focus on differentiation to meet the needs of all students. However, gifted students have unique learning needs that are not addressed by differentiation strategies, targeting only average, high achieving, or struggling learners. How does differentiation go beyond the basics to the needs of gifted/advanced learners? This session provides participants with a framework that supports the advanced pace, sophisticated complexity and greater depth required by the gifted/advanced learners. Practical, do-able, step-by step strategies are highlighted. Two follow-up online support sessions will be available for participants, dates to be determined.   During the workshop attendees will:

  • Self-assess their understanding of effective instructional practices for GT learners in the regular classroom.

  • Consider a comprehensive instructional model for successfully embedding best practices in the classroom and increasing the capacity and efficiency of teachers.

  • Make connections to specific strategies for practical and do-able differentiation for gifted learners.

  • Critically evaluate instructional practices and consider both strengths and limitations of each. Consider how classroom integration of GT instructional strategies benefits all students.
