How can we provide challenges for the gifted and talented primary school pupil in an inclusive classroom setting?
Using tried and tested examples, this book shows the busy teacher how to challenge able children in their mixed-ability class—where time and resources are usually limited. The practical tasks will show you how carefully designed activities can cater to a range of abilities. The book discusses:
- Creating a working environment that helps more able pupils thrive
- Varying the way teachers ask questions
- Developing multiple intelligences
- Offering different levels of challenge in classroom activities
- Allowing pupils choice in the activities they do
- Running whole-class research projects
Class teachers, teaching assistants, learning support teachers, and trainers looking for practical teaching ideas to challenge gifted children will find this book an ideal resource. A glossary of key terms and a range of reproducibles are included.
