During this session, on Monday, February 26 at the MAPE/PREPS Conference participants will learn how to use STEM-based strategies to group and differentiate for the advanced learners in their classrooms. These strategies will not only challenge the advanced learners, but also raise the bar for all learners in the class, making the content more interesting and motivating for the learners. Handouts will be provided for participants.
