Adapting your Lessons for the Gifted/Highly Able Learner

Bring one of your Units/Lessons and we will work in Grade groups to adapt it to support the Gifted and Highly Able Learner!  Using UDL and Backwards Design, we will work together to create PBL and Inquiry Based projects that your Gifted/Highly able students can do along side the regular class. And you can use the same Learning Outcomes!!!  AND relate it to the IEP?  Sound Impossible? It’s not!  Come and see how!

Printed Materials made available to the attendees are the following:

·      Handouts with information on Gifted/Highly-Able Children


·      Handouts on how to plan (curriculum) to be inclusive of Gifted/Highly-Able students




Target Audience
