Supporting Gifted, Talented, and Able Students - Masterclass (MGF001)
Learning and teaching strategies for identifying and working with above average achievers
Most gifted and talented learners have an insatiable appetite for knowledge and left unsupported can become bored, disruptive and/or detached from learning. It is not always easy to meet the learning and many teachers lack confidence simply resorting to 'extra work' rather than differentiated work for these learners. In this masterclass, presented by Andrew Whitehouse, you'll learn practical, actionable classroom strategies that will help you engage and support your above average learners. This masterclass was originally presented as a live event but has been recorded, edited and organised for your convenience and learning.
What you will learn:
- Above average achiever - Gifted/Talented/Able - What is the difference?
- What is gifted? Talented? Able? To include a wide range of identification strategies.
- Developmental and social problems experienced by Gifted/Talented/Able learners and interventions to overcome these.
- How to engage those who may be Gifted/Talented/Able to achieve academic satisfaction. To include extra-curricular considerations, grouping options and creating a positively challenging ethos.
- Listening to Gifted/Talented/Able in order to meet their needs fully.
- A range of ‘good practice’ general interventions.
