This session will share ideas of ways to differentiate literacy instruction for high­ achieving learners within the classroom. Presenters from the elementary, middle and high school levels will provide samples of enrichment opportunities provided to challenge learners in English/Language Arts.

Participants will take away practical ideas that can be included in literacy instruction and will challenge high achieving students within the classroom environment.

This session will address the following NAGC Standards:

  • Standard 1: Educators, recognizing the learning and developmental differences of students with gifts and talents.

  • Standard 3:Educators apply the theory and research­based models of curriculum and instruction related to students with gifts and talents...

  • Standard 4: Learning environments foster personal and social responsibility...

  • Standard 5 Educators are aware of empirical evidence regarding (a) the cognitive, creative, and affective development of learners with gifts and talents, and (b) programming that meets their concomitant needs. Educators use this expertise systematically and collaboratively to effectively manage comprehensive services for students with a variety of gifts and talents to ensure specific student outcomes.
