Teach to the Top: How to Keep High Achievers Engaged and Motivated
Renzulli, Joseph
Instructor, v117 n5 p34 Mar-Apr 2008
The key to challenging talented, advanced students and keeping them engaged and motivated within the regular classroom, says the author, is to spend time each day focusing on students' strengths and interests, and to remember that the classroom is a place for developing all sorts of talents in all students. Seven strategies are proposed to help provide opportunities for all students to continue growing and learning in the areas where they have the greatest strengths: (1) Provide open-ended assignments; (2) Create opportunities for collaboration; (3) Use tiered assignments; (4) Let them pursue independent projects; (5) Find the right books; (6) Consider an accelerated program; and (7) Aim for school-wide enrichment.
