Differentiation for gifted learners is not the same as differentiation in a regular classroom. In this 1-hour course, Richard M. Cash, Ph.D. draws from years of research and personal experience in gifted education to offer ideas for differentiating gifted courses. He discusses the various levels of the teaching and learning continuum and uses a framework to guide students toward greater learning autonomy through self-confidence.
In this course, you will learn to:
- Use pace to accelerate instructional practice
- Incorporate depth and complexity into your gifted courses
- Increase sophistication in the course through critical questioning

It was rather dry just listening to a lecture, but the information was good if a little overwhelming. I appreciated the examples given and will go over the notes provided to try to adapt it to my subject area.
