Practical Ideas That Really Work for Students Who Are Gifted is a tool for teachers in both general and gifted education classes to assist in differentiating instruction for students who are gifted or who show potential for performing at high levels of accomplishment.

This includes two components:

  • An easy to use evaluation form to rate a student's talent areas and select strategies that can be used to differentiate instruction
  • A book of practical ideas, containing 30 instructional strategies, explanations of the strategies, helpful illustrations and examples, and over 90 reproducible forms.

The rating scale consists of 40 items measuring four talent areas: general intellectual ability, specific academic aptitude, creativity, and leadership and is linked directly to the planning matrix, which allows for the selection of several appropriate instructional strategies.

It has been field-tested to ensure reliability and validity. In addition, the scale differentiates between students identified as gifted and students who have not been identified. Students identified as gifted were rated significantly higher on the scale than other students.

Includes reproducible items
