Six Ways to Meet Bright and Gifted Kids’ Needs Without Much Extra Work

Cluster grouping is an inexpensive way for schools to meet the academic needs of gifted children. However, teachers must be able to differentiate instruction for the different levels of ability in the classroom. Homogeneous Grouping for Gifted Students.

Cluster grouping gifted students tends to be the second most effective method of instruction for gifted students. On paper, this method allows students to receive gifted instruction throughout the day, but in reality, this differentiated instruction may or may not occur in a heterogeneous group. Gifted third-graders who participated in a cluster grouping study were shown to have significant gains in testing than nonclustered peers. In addition, the study found that clustering provided these students more direct contact with ability-level peers and the chance to explore content more deeply. “Cluster grouping is [when] identified gifted students at a grade level are assigned to one classroom with a teacher who has special training in how to teach gifted students.

The other students in their assigned class are of mixed ability. Differentiated instructional opportunities allow gifted. No. Cluster grouping provides an effective complement to any gifted education program. Gifted students need time to be together when they can just “be themselves.” The resource teacher might also provide assistance to all classroom teachers in their attempts to differentiate the curriculum for students who need it.

Cluster grouping addresses the academic and affective needs of gifted students and facilitates effective instruction for teachers working with all students. When incorporated well, cluster grouping can provide full-time, cost-effective services for gifted students in a manner that addresses their learning needs on a daily basis. Research by Kulik and Kulik documents that gifted students benefit from learning together and need to be placed with students of similar ability in their areas of strength.

Cluster grouping of gifted students allows them to learn together while avoiding permanent grouping arrangements for children of other ability levels. Parents of gifted students may choose to enroll their children in alternative programs, such as home schooling or charter schools. The practice of cluster grouping represents a mindful way to make sure gifted students continue to receive a quality education at the same time schools work to improve learning opportunities for all students. What are some advantages of cluster grouping? • Grouping all gifted children in a regular classroom provides social, emotional, and academic advantages to students • Teachers can focus instruction to better meet all students academic needs • Schools provide full-time gifted services with few additional costs.

Cluster grouping represents an inclusion model that allows identified gifted students to receive services on a daily basis with few financial implications to the district.

  • I tried to create a simulation of a Gifted Education classroom issue, titled “The Need for Social Acceptance”: what do you think? Useful?
    Should I make more? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvEl_QGIF10

  • Thank you for putting together some ideas to work with gifted students. I like the idea of having them teach a lesson or do an experiment!

  • The cluster grouping method sounds really good but there’s always THOSE types of parents that get offended that some kids are getting more challenging things than theirs.

  • I was neglected..as a gifted child. Only two teachers saw it…a mrs.Morton..when l was in third grade..and a mrs. Pauline avant..when l was in the sixth grade…but growing up in the south worked against me…l never really had a chance.

  • I have a profoundly gifted son (tested) and we’re looking for options. I think these are great suggestions but as a father I’m worried about the playground in between classes.
