20 More Ideas for Teaching Gifted Kids in the Middle School and High School
Picking up where its companion, 20 Ideas, leaves off, 20 More Ideas offers lessons developed by master teachers across the nation. Excite your students with these creative ideas for teaching gifted kids at the secondary level. Just imagine the following scenarios:
- helping your students organize an evening dinner theater featuring a drama written and produced by your students,
- learning the ins and outs of interviewing, by allowing your students to conduct an interview with a historical figure (i.e., you in a powdered wig),
- arranging for local experts to come speak to students during lunch in a specially organized "sandwich seminar," and
- encouraging your students to plan and participate in exotic travel around the world—without ever leaving your classroom.
In this book, you will receive the best ideas and lessons for teachers of secondary gifted kids. This companion to the original 20 Ideas book features ideas for starting a mentorship program, teaching history using scientific surveys, using simulations to teach content, organizing historical debates, producing documentaries, and much more.
