Cluster Grouping in K-4

Grouping gifted students together provides opportunities for them to work with cognitive peers. Identified students in grades K – 4 are cluster grouped with GT trained teachers. Cluster grouping places a select number of GT students together for instruction in the appropriate content area(s) for which they have been identified.

  • The GT trained teacher adapts the curriculum and environment for their gifted learners with strategies such as:
    • Using depth and complexity to lessons to support differentiation
    • Texas Performance Standards Project (TPSP)
    • Envision Projects
