Description

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
Lisa Van Gemert shares best practices in education with audiences around the world using a combination of neuropsychology, pedagogy, experience, humor, technology and sheer fun. She is an expert consult to television shows including Lifetime’s “Child Genius,” and a writer of award-winning lesson plans, as well as numerous published articles on social psychology and pedagogy and the book, Perfectionism: A Practical Guide to Managing Never Good Enough. A former teacher, school administrator, and Youth & Education Ambassador for Mensa, she shares resources for educators and parents on her website giftedguru.com and is co-founder with Ian Byrd of the Gifted Guild, a professional community for educators of the gifted. Lisa and her husband Steve are the parents of three sons and live in Arlington, Texas.
