Differentiated instruction for gifted and talented students significantly differs from the ways in which educators differentiate instruction and curriculum for other students. Within a group of advanced learners, the variety of abilities, talents, interests, and learning styles can be formidable. Differentiated instruction for gifted and talented students 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:

  • Common Core State Standards
  • real-world problem solving
  • abstract thinking
  • interdisciplinary concepts
  • authentic products
  • learning autonomy
  • accountability
  • grouping practices
  • affective curriculum
  • 21st-century skills
  • Advanced Placement and Honours classes
  • IB programs
  • under served populations
  • twice-exceptional learners.

Downloadable digital content includes PowerPoint presentation for professional development and customisable reproducible forms.
