The Schoolwide Cluster Grouping Model (SCGM) is an inclusive model that serves all gifted students and enfranchises those who are commonly underrepresented in traditional gifted-education programs. The model provides full-time services to gifted students, facilitating improved achievement for all with no significant budget impact.
Learn how to implement and support the SCGM, group students for maximum achievement, prepare cluster teachers to teach in the model, and build staff and parental support.

This session describes highly effective and easy-to-manage techniques teachers at all grade levels can use to motivate and challenge students to move forward in their own achievement levels in cluster classes. Several methods described allow gifted students to document their previous mastery with grade-level standards. Other methods facilitate faster pacing and more rigor for students who need less practice with grade-level standards. Classroom management techniques also help the teacher operate in a differentiated classroom with comfort and efficiency.
Strategies covered in this webinar are included in The Cluster Grouping Handbook.
