The Curriculum Development Kit for Gifted and Advanced Learners offers exciting new approaches for teachers to differentiate instruction and provide a challenging curriculum that meets the needs of all students in the classroom. Developed by differentiated curriculum experts Sandra N. Kaplan and Michael W. Cannon, this kit is a time-saving tool for all teachers. The three types of curricular materials structured to promote the teaching and learning of the objectives found in the kit are lessons, catalyst cards, and curriculum grids. Lessons are built around 12 big ideas, concepts, and neglected skills (such as accessing information, argumentation, creative thinking, problem solving, and research and independent study), and give teachers valuable options to enhance and retool higher level instruction. The catalyst cards have been designed to allow students to experience subject matter that is rich in depth, complexity, and rigor. These alternative areas of study include aesthetics, anthropology, and epistemology and feature rigorous activities that can be used by the entire class, groups, or individually. The curriculum grids integrate the lessons, catalyst cards and other teacher material and provide a wide range of intriguing extensions for students.
