Classroom-Based Strategies for Advanced Learners in Rural Settings
VanTassel-Baska, Joyce; Hubbard, Gail Fischer
Journal of Advanced Academics, v27 n4 p285-310 Nov 2016
This article focuses on the educational needs of rural gifted students in respect to their geographic isolation from challenge in the programs, services, and curriculum they receive in typical school settings. After a brief review of the relevant literature, it delineates the components and features of cognitive and metacognitive strategies found to be effective with rural learners who exhibit advanced abilities in one or more domains of learning. The interventions are discussed at two levels: (a) at the school level where educators may offer effective services and (b) at the classroom level where teachers may employ differentiated strategies. The article concludes with implications for the professional development of teachers in rural settings.
