Looking for a way to differentiate your teaching for your gifted learners? One great way to provide your students the content they need at their level is to lead them in an independent study. Using this document, you can help your students identify an area of interest and supplement it with goals you'd like them to integrate. Using this document allows you and your student to agree from the onset about due dates and acceptable behavior, thwarting off-task time from the beginning. All parties agree to their roles in the process.
While you must certainly check in with your students to assure their progress, you are largely able to work with your average and lower learners while your high achievers are actively engaged in work that is worthwhile, self-selected (to a degree), and enjoyable.
