Teaching materials by strategy

TEACHING MATERIALS AND RESOURCES

The materials and resources included in this collection are categorized according to the content, process and product differentiation strategies proposed by Dr. June Maker and her colleagues (1982, 1996, 2010).  Some resources appear under more than one differentiation strategy because they have the potential to provide experiences aligned with more than one strategy.  You’ll notice some are ‘old,’ but they are still good.

Relatively few of the resources in this collection were developed with the abilities and needs of gifted learners in mind, but when introduced with appropriate supports, they have the potential to respond to them in rich and powerful ways.

Notable exceptions are the outstanding array of curriculum units and resources developed by Joyce VanTassel-Baska and her colleagues from the Center for Gifted Education at the College of William & Mary.  Some of their ‘teaching models’ are available on the Center’s website  (http://education.wm.edu/centers/cfge/curriculum/teachingmodels/index.php).  Two publishers distribute their curriculum:

  • Kendall Hunt (www.kendallhunt.com) provides an overview of their problem-based science units, language arts and social studies units.
  • Prufrock Press (www.prufrock.com) publishes the Center’s reading comprehension program (Jacob’s Ladder, Levels 1-5/Grades 2-9), leadership development program (Changing Tomorrow, Books 1-3), and a variety of materials in math and science for gifted students in K-Grade 9.

This collection is by no means complete.  It is a work in progress.  If you have favourite resources you feel belong under one or more of the differentiation strategies, please let me know.  Email your suggestions to me at kanevsky@sfu.ca.
