Such a valuable resource. So many students face classes where they have either mastered what is being taught or are given extra work. This outstanding resource shows ways to differentiate both in content and instruction. ( )

This book will be very helpful in schools where curriculum compacting takes place. It offers great assistance in differentiating the curriculum for those who are advanced students and who need something to keep them occupied. I highly recommend this book. ( )

Curriculum compacting is often referenced in education textbooks, but it, along with other methods of that teachers can use to differentiate courses for students who are gifted and talented, often gets buried in the text. Few of the textbooks I have encountered devote more than a chapter to working with students who are identified as being gifted and talented. Consequently, "Curriculum Compacting: A Guide to Differentiating Curriculum and Instruction through Enrichment and Acceleration" fills an important gap when it comes to working with students. The entire book offers detailed steps, suggestions, and examples of how curriculum compacting can be used in the classroom. Furthermore, the authors provide helpful background information on curriculum compacting as well as case studies and ideas for assessment. This is an excellent guide for new teachers and veterans alike who are looking for ways to help students who are gifted and talented. ( )

There is so much emphasis on how to differentiate instruction on those students who are not achieving on grade-level, there usually aren't too many authors focused on making sure the higher-achieving students are challenged (teachers have instead just mainly focused on asking a co-worker in the grade level up for any extra "busy-work" resources they have), in which I appreciated the unique view point of this particular textbook.

The layout of the text was reader friendly, with charts and diagrams to highlight important features each author wanted the reader to remember, and was also encompassed in a good balance of fact and theory, which was presented in a sequence that was easy to follow, and included plenty of case studies to illuminate was to implement the ideas in curriculum.
