To differentiate education based on the needs of the individual gifted learner, while keeping the students together in content blocks and immersing them in multiple modes of learning
Teachers work with students in small groups or individually based on their individual learning targets or students' strengths or weaknesses.
Students are given choices on how they demonstrate their knowledge.
Videos, WebQuests, research projects, choice boards, text-books, or other activities are available to impart knowledge to students.
Grouping is flexible and may also vary by student need and evidence.
Teachers facilitate blended learning environments by developing the units, orchestrating the modes of learning, and being a coach of the learning environment, encouraging students to reach their academic potential.
