What is Talent Development and Advanced Differentiation?
Talent Development and Advanced Differentiation is a school-wide model committed to deliberately developing talents in all students. The system is designed to evaluate and meet the needs of advanced learners, promote differentiated instruction for all students, and focus on what our students can do. This type of instruction incorporates creative thinking, critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making on a daily basis (Treffinger et al., 2004). In addition, community resources are used to support differentiated and interest based instruction. Talent Development and Advanced Differentiation is proven to be effective across the country in large, multicultural, urban school districts.
