Vertical Differentiation: Strategies that Stretch
This session highlights differentiation strategies to stretch student thinking, promote deep learning, and provide layers of challenge for gifted, advanced, and high-potential students. When students have opportunities to “reach” to their next levels of learning, these experiences reveal talent. This session also highlights scaffolds for supporting students from culturally, linguistically, and economically diverse backgrounds.
