Restructuring Gifted Education Services for the 21st Century with the Schoolwide Cluster Grouping Model
Date: Monday, May 14, 2012
Presenter: Dina Brulles, Ph.D.
Schools today are experiencing dramatic changes in how they serve gifted students. Gifted programs that have prevailed for years are disappearing while our diverse gifted populations are growing. In response, an increasing number of schools are turning to the Schoolwide Cluster Grouping Model (SCGM), an inclusive model that allows gifted students to learn together all day, every day, with teachers that receive specialized training. Implementing the SCGM enfranchises underrepresented populations, yields desirable achievement outcomes for all students, yet requires no additional funding. Dr. Brulles will provide an overview of the model, discuss methods for implementation, and demonstrate ways to support the cluster-grouping model.
