Praise for the previous edition of The Cluster Grouping Handbook: A Schoolwide Model
“With this one book alone, you could revamp a whole school system, one school at a time. With this concept of cluster grouping, a school district could save all the costs of a self-contained or pull-out gifted program. And if you take this flat out declaration seriously, The Cluster Grouping Handbook will do all the thinking, all the planning, all the charting, and all the predicting you will ever need . . . to the ultimate meticulous detail. This is not an exaggeration. Every finite element for planning has been accomplished . . . buy the book! It has wonderful ideas.”—Gifted Education Communicator
“This book has been a valuable resource in setting up our GATE Clusters to meet the needs of all students. Cluster grouping has proven to be very successful in building the programs required to challenge and enrich our classrooms.”—Tony Peterson, principal, Russell Ranch School, FCUSD (Folsom Cordova, CA)
“Using SCGM throughout the entire Tulpehocken elementary learning community is increasing success for all students.”—Lisa Kiss, director of Special Education, Tulpehacken, Pennsylvania
“I used The Cluster Grouping Handbook as a gifted-cluster teacher with great success. When I oversaw the implementation of the schoolwide cluster model at my school, it became my ‘go-to guide’ because it provides concrete, immediately usable tools for managing differentiation in the classroom. I continue to use it in my current position as the gifted coordinator for my district; it is truly one of my staples in professional development for cluster teachers.”—Kim Lanese, M.Ed., gifted coordinator at Deer Valley Unified School District in Phoenix, Arizona
