Gifted and Talented is no longer deemed an appropriate title for this group of students.

We now call them the more able.

Catering for this group of students is hard work. They need:

Independence

Freedom

Innovation

Challenge

Support

Constructive criticism

‘If the work is boring, then I just colour in my planner’

what is differentiation
What is differentiation?
  • Enrichment – applying skills and understanding to a range of problems, bringing subjects together.
  • Vertical extension – tasks increasing in demand/depth.
  • Acceleration – working on more demanding courses than most would for the year group.
  • Horizontal extension – more of the same.
our downfalls
Our downfalls
  • Teacher Talk
  • The talk ratio of teacher to student is usually 70:30, ideally this should be reversed.
  • Research…shows that teachers need to pay attention to the amount and type of talking they do, and to evaluate its effectiveness in the light of their pedagogical objectives. (Nunan 1991: 198)
  • Teacher talk should not occupy the major proportion of a class hour; otherwise you are probably not giving students enough opportunity to talk. (Brown 2001: 99)
  • Reliance
  • We must not rely on our more able students to ‘teach/help’ others. This is alright sometimes but we must remember they need stretch and challenge not more of the same and doing our job for us.
so what is the impact of g t on teaching
So, what is the impact of G&T on teaching?
  • If we choose not to acknowledge G&T in our classroom its impact can be detrimental on behaviour, attitude towards learning and grades.
  • If we choose to embrace and differentiate for G&T the impact will be engaged, motivated and independent learners, achieving their full potential.
