This course focuses on teaching & learning strategies that have proved successful with gifted students, including the Hilda Taba teaching strategies, the Parnes creative problem-solving strategy, and Kohlberg's discussions of moral dilemmas. Participants investigate the assumptions underlying each strategy and the ways in which each meets gifted students' needs for differentiation. Selected strategies will be modeled in class which provides participants with opportunities for becoming proficient using the strategies and integrating them into both core and differentiated curriculums.
