I really liked it because it gives you simple strategies that anyone can use in the class, regardless of subject or grade level. Also, you aren’t overwhelmed with too many strategies. They give them to you, tell you the logic behind them, and give you examples.I really liked it, and I learned a lot about how to use simple activities to get higher level thinking.

This course provides a lot of helpful activities that are sure to challenge G/T students without fear of leaving struggling students behind. I would highly recommend and encourage other educators to take a good look at these activities and think about how they can be used in the classroom.
