Brainstorming A-Z My To Do List Spend a few minutes thinking of how to apply information from today.
Be prepared to share it with the group.
1. Mole Strategy: Plant questions with reluctant students or button-pushers.
2. Wait Time: Give wait time before answering. 5-10 seconds
3. Use a random method for calling names
4. Don’t call on anyone until half have raised their hands
5.Call on students who don’t raise their hands
6.Ask them to ex plain, whether correct or not. A Good Education How do I get started? ASSESSMENTS "The question is more important than the answer." The teacher of the gifted and talented is a creator of possibilities so students have the opportunities:
To think in different ways
To ask different kinds of questions
To apply what they know in different ways At its most basic level, differentiation consists of the efforts of teachers to respond to variance among learners in the classroom. Whenever a teacher reaches out to an individual or small group to vary his or her teaching in order to create the best learning experience possible, that teacher is differentiating instruction.
....... Carol Ann Tomlinson Three types of
assessment: 1. Preassessment
3. Summative Not quite ready-needs reteaching or remediation
Ready-has grasps of concepts
More than ready-requires more depth and complexity into concepts

Rules for behaviors Designing a Tiered Assignment
A six step process:
• Identify the content
• Consider your students’ needs
• Create an activity
• Chart the complexity of the activity
• Create other versions of the activity
• Match one version of the task to each student When creating alternative activities for students, how do you
increase the breadth and depth of a lesson? To alter the depth of a lesson, the teacher provides a whole group introduction, whole group initial instruction, and identifies student differences based on prior knowledge, readiness to learn, learning rate, and ability. S/he will then increase or decrease--abstraction--extent of support--sophistication--complexity of the goals --resources, --activities,--products. Tiered assignments lend themselves to this type modification • To increase the breadth of a lesson the teacher first provides a whole group introduction and small group instruction. S/he might then launch small groups on alternative activities.
The key here is to provide students with variety.
– choice of resources
– product options
– alternative activities
– varying goals
– open-ended questions and activities
–choices based on learning style preferences and interests
