Welcome to our DYNAMIC website! 

Dynamic: marked by usually continuous and productive activity or change

GIFTED CLUSTER HANDBOOK-- use this link to access the AMAZING reference guide available on the PUSD Staff Portal for all gifted cluster classroom instructors. 

Each of the learning activities on this website have been specifically designed to meet the academic needs and reasoning abilities of a gifted child within a meaningful context.  The encouragement given to children and the support of the program goals and expectations will be instrumental in providing the best possible learning environment for gifted-identifed students.

Maybe you are a teacher looking for more resources on differentiating instruction in your classroom?  There are two main spots to go on this website.

Class Links on the lefthand side of the home page will open up to three folders that may be helpful: Parent/ Teacher Gifted Links, Professional Videos and Computer-Based Challenges.  The first two folders contain links to websites related to gifted and talented needs and wants.  The third folder contains links to some higher level thinking online "games" that gifted students have found engaging.

Select Teacher Files in Class Documents and Assignments on the righthand side of the homepage. Here you will find downloadable resources to guide your instruction in the classroom.
 
Please check back often-- and don't hesitate to contact your site-based gifted instructional coach for more information OR to share your own DI project ideas!
