Read Summary

Differentiation for gifted students significantly differs from the ways in which educators differentiate curriculum and instruction for other students. Within a group of advanced learners, the variety of abilities, talents, interests, and learning styles can be formidable. Differentiating for them must go beyond adjusting content levels, task complexity, or product choice. For the first time, this book connects the unique learning differences among gifted students to the specific teaching methods used to tailor their educational experiences. Topics discussed include real-world problem solving, abstract thinking, interdisciplinary concepts, authentic products, learning autonomy, accountability, grouping practices, affective curriculum, 21st-century skills, Advanced Placement and Honors classes, IB programs, underserved populations, and twice-exceptional learners.

Help students build motivation, resilience, and career readiness with this practical and engaging resource. To succeed in school, students need more than subject area knowledge—they must learn how to learn. Self-regulation, an executive functioning skill, describes the ways that students focus attention on achieving success. Self-regulated learners find personal value in learning, develop effective study habits, welcome challenges, seek help, and use failure as a learning tool. This user-friendly guide makes the process of developing self-regulation as easy as ABC: Affect (how you feel), Behavior (what you do), and Cognition (how you think). Teaching students to balance these three elements builds motivation, resilience, and college and career readiness. Digital content includes customizable forms from the book.
