Select a grade level and a content area. How would you differentiate for a gifted child? What would need to be done for a gifted child who has mastered the majority of the standards for that grade level? Explain why it is not enough just to give the child additional work. Differentiation is an expectation in the classroom in order to meet all students’ needs. Select an age and concept. Discuss three ways to differentiate instruction for a particular age of students. Why is differentiation important while taking into account the multiple influences (cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional, and/or physical) on early development and learning?
