Gifted students thrive when they are given individual attention, resources, and encouragement to grow, but why aren’t we doing that for every student? Gifted educator Marcia Gentry says that when you remove a gifted student from their classroom, you are affecting the rest of the students. Instead, she offers Total School Cluster Grouping as the solution to helping both gifted and average students thrive.

In this 3-module course, you’ll learn about the difference that Total School Cluster Groups can make for all of your students. Ms. Gentry says that when all regular classroom teachers are equipped to provide cluster groups, gifted students can receive full-time gifted instruction.

After completing this course, you’ll have a deeper understanding of: 

  • The difference between Generic Cluster Groups and Total School Cluster Groups
  • Why Total School Clustering is important
  • Total School Cluster Grouping definition, features, and goals
  • How to implement Total School Cluster groups in your classroom
