The parallel curriculum : a design to develop high potential and challenge high-ability learners by Carol A Tomlinson( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: Offering a new perspective on developing curriculum and instruction, the parallel curriculum model is meant for use in both heterogeneous and homogeneous classroom settings. Whether students are working at a basic level of skill and understanding or at the highest ability ready for more complex learning, teachers can use this model with confidence. The parallel curriculum model offers four parallel approaches to curriculum development to ensure rich curriculum for all learners, and illustrates ascending intellectual demand as a means of extending the intensity of challenge as students develop along a continuum toward expertise in learning. Clearly, education benefits from a variety of models from which teachers and schools can select to most appropriately address the learning needs of students. Here, the authors illustrate how use of the parallels shape curriculum for students--and the ongoing professional growth of educators themselves

Educating for creativity & innovation : a comprehensive guide for research-based practice by Donald J Treffinger( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today, more than ever before, we must all be able to think creatively, manage change, and solve complex, open-ended problems. Education today is different in its structure and practice than any previous generation, not just because of the impact of technology and the Internet, but also because, across the lifespan, every person studies, works, and plays in a global community that was unknown to previous generations. Although organizations worldwide recognize that their success both now and in the future depends on a workforce capable of effective thinking, problem solving, and innovation, educational practice still lags behind our knowledge in these areas. Educating for Creativity and Innovation is a powerful resource to close the gap between research and practice and to promote understanding and effective practice relating to creativity and innovation. In short, this is a book whose time is now!
