Transcript of Gifted instructional strategies

Picking the right strategy... ...Leads to blooming students! Assessment and procedures to increase self-awareness Preassessment of units allows the teacher to ascertain students prior knowledge and tailor instruction to their needs.
Rubrics presented in the initial phase of learning allows students to reflect and understand the criteria which needs to be met on the project or assignment.
Use of formative and summative assessment allows the teacher to intervene when the student is not understanding or needs to be challenged on a higher level.
Self-reflection done by the student allows the student to monitor their own progress and understanding
Self-management, self-control, self-reliance, and self advocacy Allow students to help decide on class rules and behaviors that will promote learning.
Character education through role-plays and direct teaching allows gifted students to practice appropriate behaviors and establishes ways they can communicate their needs safely and effectively.
Inventories and questionnaires help students understand themselves and their learning styles and needs more fully.
Using literature to help students understand and resolve personal issues they may have is non-threatening and effective. Creativity
SCAMPER is an acronym for Substitute, Combine, Adapt, Modify, Put to another use, Reverse. The SCAMPERtechnique allows students to develop lateral thinking skills.
Allowing the students to be creative through writing prompts that challenge them to think outside the box. I LOVE using Nathan Levy's book Creativity Day-By-Day - and my students can't stop talking about their thinking.
Incorporating music and art into product assessment allows students the opportunity to express themselves in other areas they may have talents.
Problem Solving Problem solving websites like the University of Mississippi (http://mathcontest.olemiss.edu/) or competitions centered on problem solving in real life situations (Odyssey of the Mind, Ohio Model United Nations, Future Problem Solving) allows students to apply problem solving skills to real world problems and find solutions
Teaching students about different graphic organizers for decision making as well as concept mapping helps students to organize their thinking in order to find solutions.
Problem Based Learning presents core curriculum through an ill-structured problem, which generates questions and leads the learner to search for more information. As information is gathered the problem changes and students can never be sure they have a 100% correct answer, but the learning that takes place is vast.
Leadership/Social Skills Direct instruction of a unit on leaders, in which students identify character traits of successful leaders will help students identify desirable traits and see the impact a leader has (both positive and negative)
Collaborative work among students is a critical component of developing appropriate leadership and social skills. Cooperative learning allows students to interact with others in specified roles so they can begin to understand the advantages of interdependence.
Role plays and creative dramas can be used to allow students to develop and act out appropriate leadership and social behaviors.
Cognitive Ability P.E.T.S. -Primary Education Thinking Skills is a great program to begin teaching younger gifted students about thinking skills and how to apply them in the classroom and in problem-solving situations.
To increase cognitive abilities, students enjoy puzzles and games that challenge them. Sodoku, logic puzzles, rebus puzzles, cryptograms - anything that challenges them and they enjoy they will work hard to solve.
A teacher should use Bloom's Taxonomy, and incorporate questions and projects for high achieveing students that require them to function at the top 3 levels. When students Analyze, Synthesize, and Evaluate they are pushing themselves cognitively.
