Differentiation for High Achievers

Amongst other Australian Professional Standards for Teachers 1.5, 1.6 and 4.1 will be a major focus during this workshop. This program will assist teachers to use the Australian Curriculum Framework to develop a variety of curriculum approaches that meet the needs of High Achievers.

Key elements of the program include –

  • How to use the achievement standards and strands to plan for relevant learning for gifted and talented students and high achievers
  • Understanding the learning needs of high achievers
  • Understanding the differences between acceleration and enrichment and how to apply them
  • Identifying the evidence based research models that challenge and deepen students’ capacity to problem solve and expand their thinking. This includes models developed by Renzulli, Maker, Williams, Parnes and Kaplan
