Creating differentiated learning experiences for gifted learners requires an analysis of the curriculum, as it currently exists. This session will focus on a series of strategies (learning centers, interactive bulletin boards, and inquiry pedagogy) that can be used to create differentiated and individualized learning experiences for gifted learners within the core curriculum. This session invites participants to engage in a curriculum writing workshop that uses their curriculum and/or lesson plans as the basis for differentiation. It is an anticipated goal of the session that participants leave with a restructured learning experience that has been reinforced, modified, and extended to meet the needs of the gifted learners in their classroom. Although this session welcomes all participants, a working knowledge of the elements of the GATE standards is preferred.
