What’s the difference between tiering your classroom instruction and compacting it? 

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
