The Beginning of Implementing GATE Strategies

O UR A GENDA : Understanding the basics of GATE teaching A GATE classroom What to do in the beginning: Introducing Scholarliness Introducing the elements of Depth and Complexity Other ideas

3
Depth and Complexity is used to differentiate learning opportunities that stress the complexity of subject matter, develop greater depth in thinking and reasoning skills, and provide for the creation of new ideas and new products. GATE instruction emphasizes the use of multiple resources and research.

Kaplans depth & complexity icons offer explicit ways for students to gain access to thinking analytically about content. The icons themselves become meta-cognitive tools by which students take ownership of their own inquiry and understanding of a given topic. There are 8 elements of depth and 3 elements of complexity…

30
Depth and Complexity is NOT separate content that you teach in addition to your subject-area curriculum. Depth and Complexity is NOT meant to only be teacher driven. Depth and Complexity is NOT meant for only the gifted.

31
Language: According to Kaplan, depth occurs when students understand the language of the discipline. This involves learning specialized vocabulary for particular contents. Details : Depth also occurs as students learn the details of a discipline. Details refer to the parts and variables or attributes of the content. Patterns: learning about patterns, students can look at repetition & predictability in a given topic. Teachers can encourage students to look at the repetitions associated with the topic & review their reoccurrence over time.

32
Trends : when students study the trends associated with a discipline, they learn what influences that discipline. Trends refer to the direction or action, the factors that influence events. Unanswered Questions: many times, throughout a course of study, there will be unanswered questions. At first glance, there are times when students wont realize that there are unanswered questions. Challenging students to search for them is a way to add depth to curriculum. Rules: every discipline has rules that govern it and form an unspoken hierarchy. Prompting students to look for those rules that bring order and structure adds depth to the curriculum.

33
Ethics: many times, there are dilemmas and controversial issues that relate to a discipline. Kaplan believes students should look deeply at the ethics that relate to the topic, which include judging & forming opinions. Big Idea: all disciplines are governed by generalizations, principles, and theories. Guiding students to look closely at these big ideas encourages them to look beyond simplistic details of the content.

34
Over Time: Looking at change over time within a unit of study encourages students to identify and examine changes as well as causality. Points of View: looking at a topic from multiple perspectives allows students to identify and analyze differences among world views, opinions, or biases. To think like… Interdisciplinary Connections: one of the most important cognitive skills is to be able to associate, integrate, & link content to other content.
