6 Product Creative and performance- based DebatePresentationBrochureCreate a PlayMock TrialCreating a brochure is a good activity for all students. But for high ability student, require justification or prioritizing or some higher order thinking. For example, some students could create a brochure listing the tourism attractions in West Virginia, while students with higher abilities could create a brochure listing the tourism attractions with justifications (why white-water rafting in West Virginia is better than in Colorado.Another example, some students could list the sources of energy in a presentation, while other students could list the sources and compare in costs and/or effects on environment.But at higher levels of thinking
7 Cross-Curricular Goal Example Critical SkillTimeframeConditionBehaviorEvaluation Criteria with ProcedureBy the end of grade 9when provided a model for problem solving and conferencing with teacher for each research/PBL project phaseJane will select 4 resources to plan, develop, organize and deliver a research/PBL projectas measured per project using rubric and a rating of above average or more on final product.PROCESS

The product should address higher level thinking rather than just a list of information (i.e., why is this important/relevant in present day living; how will this impact future living in the community?).

12 ServicesSpecial Education Services - a change to the content of the general education curriculum due to the nature of a student’s exceptionality or the unique needs arising from the student’s exceptionality.Generally, two categories:AccelerationEnrichmentHighlight “change to the content” beyond what is offered in the general education classroom.
13 Specialized Instruction in B. Related Services in C. Part IX: ServicesAccommodation in A.Specialized Instruction in B.Related Services in C.
14 Services Direct Services (by the special educator): Pull out to Resource Room (SEE)Special Classes (SEE)Direct Instruction by the Gifted Specialist in the General Classroom (Co-Teaching) (GEE)Independent StudyMentorshipDistance Learning (Gifted Education teacher as facilitator)Technology – TelecommunicationSeminarsRead slide.There are currently no special classes (as defined as 60% or more time in special education).
15 Services Indirect Services: Consultation WV Policy 5202 states: § Consultative Special Education Teacher. – A special education teacher may serve in a consultative role to content certified and highly qualified general education teachers who are providing direct initial instruction to special education students.The consultative special education teacher is not the teacher of record for students to who s/he is providing services.” Does not confer the grade.Read slide.
16 Services Consultation (continued) To confer a grade: If the special education teacher of gifted education does not hold the appropriate content specialization, a formal procedure must be developed to show collaboration and inclusion between the special education teacher and the general education instructors who are the teachers of record and who are conferring the grade.The mere presence in the classroom is not “a formal procedure to show collaboration.”Read slide.
17 Environment Placement Options: General Education: Full-Time (80-100%) General Education: Part-Time (40-79%)Special Education: Separate Class (0-39% in general education)1650 minutes per week or 330 minutes per day.
18 Overall Gifted Programming Does it:Provide for academic progressRemediate academic weaknessEnhance psychological adjustmentProvide socialization
19 Math Strategies for Deeper Thinking Finding Patterns
20 Developmental PhasesPiaget linked to age, but Van Hiele is not linked to age. So, if an adult has not moved beyond the visual stage, he/she may continue in misinformation.
22 Developmental PhasesThe next phase would be Formal Deduction in which Theorems are explained – proven.
23 Developmental PhasesInduction: Moving from an example to a theory that explains all examples; reasoning from the particular to general.If you inscribe a triangle in a circle so that one leg lies along the diameter of the circle, it seems to be a right triangle. You might conclude that this is always the case.The next phase would be Formal Deduction in which Theorems are explained – proven.
30 Three of These Things Belong Together Example of more than one answer.

32 Describing Functions and Their Graphs Three situations and two graphs are given below. Match each graph to the situation that it represents.Situation 1: A car is driving down the street and runs into a tree.Situation 2: Water is draining from a bathtub.Graph ALabel the axes of the graphs with appropriate units.Graph BDana Johnson, College of William and Mary

34 From Inductive Reasoning To Proof These two arguments are constructed for this statement: Every odd whole number is the sum of two consecutive whole numbers.Student A: Student B:1= Take any odd number, say,3= Because 17 is odd, it is5= an even number plus 1.7=3+49= =16+1=8+8+1=I tried the first fiveand it clearly works!Student B developed a systematic way to produce all cases.Student A may not hold a key idea.David Yopp (2010).

35 Analytical Reasoning Example 1 Sales manager Phil Forrester is trying to put together a sales team to cover the Los Angeles area. His team will consist of four members – two experiences and two new salesmen.Sam, Fred, Harry and Kim are the experienced salesmen.John, Tim and Dom are new.Sam and Fred do not work together.Tim and Sam refuse to work together.Harry and Dom cannot work together.Question 1.If Sam is made part of the team, the following must be the other members:A.
