  3. Differentiating The Curriculum: Supporting Teachers to Thrive in Mixed-Ability Classrooms

    In mixed-ability classrooms, it is inevitable that students will have different learning styles, backgrounds, prior knowledge, experience and willingness to learn. While teachers may be unable to change the content prescribed by their school, they have an enormous amount of control in the way they assign this content to their students. These include: Ability Grouping; Cooperative Learning Teams; Learning Contracts; Learning Centres; Multi-age Grouping; and Individual Learning Plans.

  4. Differentiated Activities and Assessments Across the Australian Curriculum

    A significant advantage of working with the Australian Curriculum is the ability to modify existing content descriptions for broader curriculum application. Because they lend themselves so readily to differentiation, Australian Curriculum content descriptions can lead beyond lower-level test-prep answers to higher-level thinking and mastery of 21st century skills. Carolyn Coil's practical examples show educators how to use differentiated curriculum, instruction and assessment to promote individual student achievement. Within this framework, this book addresses over 50 topics in the Australian Curriculum learning areas of English, Mathematics, Humanities, Social Sciences and Science.

  5. Changing Minds and Brains: The Legacy of Reuven Feuerstein: Higher Thinking and Cognition Through Mediated Learning

    Decades before educators began to draw teaching and learning implications from neuroscientists' findings on brain plasticity, Reuven Feuerstein had already theorised it and developed practices for teaching and developing higher level cognition and learning for all students. His mediated learning, enrichment instruments and dynamic assessment are used around the world to raise student achievement, success levels and self-regulation. This text provides a first-person narrative of the implementation of mediated learning experience (MLE), past and present, including stories, new insights, observations and newly formulated concepts on MLE and how it contributes to higher-level thinking and overcoming disability.

  8. Understanding & Nurturing Non-Verbally Gifted Learners

    Non-verbal ability does not readily show itself on standardised achievement testing or in schoolwork - especially after Year 1 when students are increasingly asked to show what they know in writing. Sometimes kids who seem pretty typical surprise us with an insight, suddenly performing a task beyond their years or simply seem to know without being able to explain how they know. These are the kids who are often left out of gifted programs in school yet they offer the sort of 21st century skills that will make our world a better place. This book is addressed to all those parents who wonder about their child's flashes of brilliance but cannot quite lay a finger on a particular gift, and the teachers who see the same gleam in a student's eyes.
