Differentiating for the Gifted/Highly Abled Student
“Finding out about gifted children, trying to define their differences and identify and develop their talents, understanding how they feel and what they need to thrive and succeed – these are all pieces of the intricate puzzle facing many teachers of gifted children” (AAEGT 2004).
This workshop will investigate the following questions –
- What does it mean to be gifted?
- Are there different types of giftedness?
- How can we differentiate the curriculum to cater for them?
- What opportunities can we offer beyond the classroom?
