Demystifying Differentiation for the Gifted

The word differentiation has been around for decades and there are enormous bodies of work around the topic of differentiation of curriculum and instruction. While some of the resources are grounded in best practices, some are not, and this seems to be particularly true when it comes to designing sound curriculum for gifted and academically talented learners.


Learn how to design tasks for highly capable learners that honor the important principles of sound design such as creating tiered assignments and choice assignments that are respectful work for the gifted and talented student.
