Six Classic Gifted Instructional Strategies Re-Conceived

WAETAG · December 20, 2020

Guest Speaker: Dr. Jason Mcintosh

Although many things in education operate on a pendulum, others never go out of style. Curriculum compacting, extensions menus, tiering, cubing, critical thinking, and the Kaplan Depth and Complexity Model are just a few examples of the latter group. This webinar will describe NEW ways to adapt OLD strategies in order to get more bang for your buck. The newly conceived and renamed strategies covered by the presenter include Tiering With Teeth, the Compactor Extractor, the Kaplan Carousel, the Extensionizer, Cubing Reconceived, and the 3S4K Critical Thinking Model.
