the thin line we walk

06 Feb

it’s always tough when i want to soft-peddle a message. you know what i mean? when you really want to drive a point home but you need to qualify it in a way that allows maximum chances of the audience embracing what you are saying. example: when working with teachers that have small numbers of gifted students in their classroom there are two points that i want to drive home, the first being that good instruction is good instruction, and there are high ability students in your class that may not carry a GT label. at the same time i want to stress the point that it is not an option to differentiate or not differentiate for your gifted students. as a colleague mentioned today, it’s tough to have the conversation about serving gifted students when the pressing concern of the other person isn’t the framework, it’s about passing TAKS.
