For the purpose of this module's discussion, you have been randomly divided into SIX groups.
For you INITIAL POSTING, consider the following:
DOES DIFFERENTIATION AND/OR GROUPING WORK FOR GIFTED STUDENTS?
SHOULD WE DIFFERENTIATE? SHOULD WE GROUP? WHY OR WHY NOT?
For the INITIAL POSTING, consider your own personal experiences on the topic.
NEXT, I would like for you to seek out EVIDENCE that DIFFERENTIATION or GROUPING works (particularly in the regular classroom. This should be RESEARCH BASED. This is especially important in the Age of the Common Core. Utilize the access to online databases of research journals via the ECU Library. Please provide the citation for all additional materials outside of the course in your posting.
I will be looking for to not only connect to the course content, but I am also looking for you to extend beyond the assigned reading as well.
As with our previous discussion postings, you should have a minimum of FOUR postings in the module.
