Using Curriculum Compacting To Challenge the Above-Average
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to how to challenge an above-average student, but one useful strategy is to use curriculum compacting. Curriculum compacting is a process of reducing the amount of material covered in a course, or making the material more challenging. This can be done by either reviewing the material more carefully or by adding new material to the course.
When used correctly, curriculum compacting can help a student with an above-average IQ to catch up to their classmates and even surpass them. It can also help students who are struggling to stay on top of their classes. By reducing the amount of material covered, students are forced to focus on the material that is important. This can help them to understand the material better and to retain it longer.
There are a few things to keep in mind when using curriculum compacting to challenge an above-average student. First, make sure that the material that is being compacted is actually important. If the material is not important, the student may not be able to understand or retain it. Second, make sure that the material that is being added is actually relevant to the student’s current level. If the material is too difficult, the student may not be able to understand or retain it. Finally, be sure to monitor the student’s progress carefully. If the student is struggling, adjust the curriculum compacting accordingly.
