Presenter: Richard M. Cash, Ed.D., nRich Educational Consulting
Core Area: Social & Emotional
Grade Level: Elementary & Secondary
Hours: 1

The difference between an Olympic runner and a weekend jogger isn’t simply that one runs faster than the other. Just as an Olympic athlete’s body trains and functions differently, the brain of a gifted student must be trained differently. Gifted courses should not just be harder versions of regular classroom work. They should be tailored and designed to stretch, challenge, and engage the brains of our gifted learners.

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
This course is aligned with 2016 ODE Teacher Competencies a, b, c, e, f, g and NAGC Teacher Preparation Standards 2.2, 3.3, 3.4, 5.1.
