The Gifted Student
Chval, Kathryn B.; Davis, Jane A.
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v14 n5 p267-274 Dec 2008
Differentiating instruction for gifted students can enhance participation, engagement, and mathematical learning for all students. The purpose of this article is to (a) discuss gifted students' perception of their participation to middle school mathematics classrooms; (b) explain how one teacher differentiated a mathematical task to engage all her students; and (c) discuss considerations for other middle school teachers tackling the challenge of differentiation. (Contains 2 tables and 4 figures.)
