A must read for all teachers. This book not only sets out very clearly the needs of Able Gifted and Talented pupils, but also helps teachers reappraise their classroom practice and the role of the learner – Johanna M Raffan, Director of NACE, National Association for Able Children. How can we provide challenges for the gifted and talented primary school pupil in an inclusive classroom setting? Using tried and tested examples, this book shows the busy teacher how to challenge able children in their mixed-ability class – where time and resources are usually limited. The practical tasks will show you how carefully designed activities can cater for a range of abilities. The book has sections on: – creating a working environment that helps more able pupils to thrive; – varying the way you ask pupils questions; – thinking about multiple intelligences and ways to develop them; – developing different levels of challenge in classroom activities; – allowing pupils some choice in the activities they do; – advice on how to run whole-class research projects.
