Designing lessons for gifted and talented students

Teachers of gifted and talented students can access relevant and engaging materials that are drawn from the Australian Curriculum.

Illustrations of Personalised Learning are a suite of materials that show how teachers can use the Australian Curriculum to make adjustments for gifted and talented students. Illustrations of Personalised Learning comprise a video showcasing a particular school’s approach, along with additional resources for teachers including the relevant references to the Australian Curriculum, questions for staff discussion and program documents.

The purpose of Illustrations is to provide advice on how teachers can use flexible design of the Australian Curriculum to meet the individual learning needs of gifted and talented students, and make necessary adjustments to meet students’ individual learning needs. Each illustration of personalised learning (for Year 2 and Year 5) demonstrates how a teacher accesses the curriculum to plan quality teaching and learning programs for their gifted and talented students.

You can see the Illustrations of Personalised Learning, including the videos, on the Australian Curriculum website.
