Advancing Differentiation - Gifted Book Study Oct. 14 - Dec. 13, 2019
(Eight weeks= off week of Thanksgiving)
Cost: $65 per person
Facilitator: Cathy Chenoweth
Advancing Differentiation
By Richard Cash Ed.D

Differentiating your instruction is about more than simply tailoring materials and activities to different students.

It’s about:
  • Deeply engaging every learner
  • Challenging students to move beyond the curriculum, think critically, and generate new ideas
  • Helping students manage their emotions and behaviors, direct their own learning, connect concepts across content areas, and ultimately make sense of their world.
These are the skills that will prepare our students for the workforce, and they are the skills detailed in this book. Advancing Differentiation is a powerful resource that will transform the way you teach and the way your students learn.

This 15 contact hour book study will provide participants an opportunity to examine and improve their own practices with differentiation. Participants will independently read the text, complete reflections connecting the text and their practice, and have on-line discussions with other participants. This book study qualifies for Gifted PD hours.

Participants are required to obtain a copy of the book Advancing Differentiation: Thinking and Learning for the 21st Century by Richard Cash.
