If you're like many teachers, you're expected to differentiate for gifted students, but haven't been given appropriate resources. Textbooks pay lip-service to differentiation, but their "advanced lessons" are clearly tacked-on after-thoughts. Workshops focus on big ideas but skimp on specifics. Even books specifically written for gifted education require you to read, understand, and figure out how to implement the lessons.
In the end, all of these resources leave you with a bunch of work, and you just don't have the time. Your job is to teach, not create curriculum, design lessons, or develop projects.
Byrdseed.TV takes that work off your plate. Within minutes of joining, you can be leading your students through one of over 250 pre-made lessons, projects, and enrichment activities designed from the ground up specifically for gifted students using best-practices, including:
It's all done for you. You get everything you need, including student-focused videos with scaffolded examples, worksheets, slides, and interactive apps. And the library grows every month.
Thousands of teachers around the world use Byrdseed.TV with their gifted students. 583 more signed up during the last registration window. Here's what they have to say:
"I absolutely LOVE all of the ideas on your site… I'm using Byrdseed TV to differentiate activities for my clustered students to work on when the rest of the class is doing something they’ve already mastered."
Wendy in Washington
"Love, love, love Byrdseed TV... I used many ideas and lessons this year. The kids loved the lessons and were engaged!"
Tiffany in California
"Such innovative ideas and easy to implement. I’ve used a handful of your lessons to date. During each of those lessons, my students were engaged and excited about the topic.”
Angela in Colorado
While many lessons and activities would benefit students of any age, I'm currently focused on building out resources for upper-elementary content. If you work with 3rd through 6th graders, you'll get the most benefit from Byrdseed.TV's current offerings.
