Lisa Van Gemert, M.Ed.T, describes it this way: Tiered instruction is a quintessential approach to differentiation, in which the same curriculum is tailored to different students’ abilities and interests. Compacting, on the other hand, involves giving a condensed version of your content to a student who has either mastered it already, or will be able to master it quickly.
In this 1-hour course, you will learn:
- 6 steps for effective tiering
- 8 simple rules for compacting
- How to follow the interests of your GT students
