Are gifted education practices appropriate for all students?
from By: Susan Winebrenner (commentary)
After delivering workshops on teaching gifted kids, I am often asked, "Wouldn't these teaching tips and interventions for gifted students be helpful for other students in my class?" I always give the same enthusiastic response: "Of course they would. What I have been demonstrating in this workshop are simply effective teaching techniques to improve any teacher's ability to diagnose each student's entry level into upcoming content, then prescribe work that moves that student forward in his own learning." Interestingly, those words describe a popular program in current use in many districts, called "response to intervention."
