or touch on at least three sides.
If a picture is worth
1,000 words, make sure
you say something.

High quality images are not
the icing on the cake.
They are the cake.
Use only copyright/royalty

  18. 18. Theoretical Underpinnings of the Parallel Curriculum Model Curriculum design should….. ! Respect the unique characteristics of the learner; ! Be organized around the structure of knowledge; ! Reflect content selection and procedures that will help maximize the transfer of knowledge, understanding, and skill; ! Select content (representative topics) that best represent the essential structure of the discipline; and ! Place a premium on the development of process skills, the appropriate use of methodology within content fields, and consider goals or outcomes in terms of concrete and abstract products. Effective Curriculum for All Learners •  Has a clear focus on the essential facts, understandings, and skills that professionals in that discipline value most •  Provide opportunities for students to develop in-depth understanding •  Is organized to ensure that all student tasks are aligned with the goals of in-depth understanding •  Is coherent (organized, unified, sensible) to the student •  Is mentally and affectively engaging to the learner •  Recognizes and supports the need of each learner to make sense of ideas and information, reconstructing older understandings with new ones •  Is joyful-or at least satisfying •  Provides choices for the learner •  Allows meaningful collaboration Effective Curriculum for All Learners •  Is focused on products (sometimes students make or do) that matter to students •  Connects with students lives and worlds •  Is fresh and surprising •  Seems real, purposeful, useful to students •  Is rich •  Deals with profound ideas •  Calls on students to use what they learn in interesting and important ways •  Aids students in developing a fruitful consciousness of their thinking •  Helps learners monitor and adapt their ways of working to ensure competent approaches to problem solving •  Involves students in setting goals for their learning and assessing their progress toward those goals •  Stretches the student Ascending Levels of Intellectual Demand Take Into Consideration Students ……. •  •  •  •  •  •  •  Cognitive abilities Prior knowledge Schema Opportunities to learn Learning rate Developmental differences Levels of abstraction Ascending Levels of Demand Ascending levels of intellectual demand is the process that escalates one or more facets of the curriculum in order to match a learner s profile and provide appropriate challenge and pacing. Prior knowledge and opportunities, existing scheme, and cognitive abilities are major attributes of a learner s profile. Teachers reconfigure one or more curriculum components in order to ensure that students are working in their zone of optimal development. Why Provide Ascending Levels of Intellectual Demand? • To honor differences among students • To address varying levels of prior knowledge, varying opportunities, and cognitive abilities • To ensure optimal levels of academic achievement • To support continuous learning • To ensure intrinsic motivation • To provide appropriate levels of challenge

  22. 22. 3. Text rules.
  23. 23. Avoid too much text. No exceptions.
  24. 24. Three  things  you  must  keep  in  mind:           • Pacing:  You’ve  got  allow  proper  pacing  of  GT  learners  through  the  Standards.    Students  may   be  working  at  much  higher  level  of  standards  and/or  capable  of  progressing  through  more   than  one  grade  level  in  a  single  school  year.    Flexible  pacing  is  key.   ! • Differentiation:    It’s  got  to  happen.    The  complexity  of  work  must  be  greater  with  the  GT   students.    Creativity  must  be  included  in  the  rubric.    Problem-­‐based  learning  can  work  with   both  of  these.   ! • Curriculum  Openness:  The  curriculum  should  not  be  limited  by  content  area.  GT  students   can  and  should  work  across  the  curriculum,  seamlessly  blending  all  content  areas.    One  of   their  greatest  strengths  is  the  ability  to  see  the  interconnectedness  of  ideas  and  theories,   and  this  should  be  encouraged. This is not a presentation.   This is a picture of a document.
