A Different Place

A Different Place is a website that has a variety of activities and resources  for gifted students, parents of gifted students, and teachers.  If you click on the “Teachers” button on the home page, you are taken to a welcome page for teachers.  About halfway down the Teachers page, in the paragraph that starts with “The web contains thousands of excellent lesson plans…”, click on the “here” link.  This will take you to a page with links to lesson plans designed for student in grades K-12.  The links are organized by subject area.  I did find a few broken links, but for the most part the links are active and take you to sites with good lesson plans.

Once you’re in the Teachers page, be sure to check out the links in the left sidebar for some additional resources.  In particular, I liked the listing of products offered on the “Types of Products” and “Multiple Intelligences Products” pages.

Back on the home page, be sure to click on the “Resources” button.  This will take you to a site called “The Best of the Web”.  While this page is not organized as well as the Teacher page on the A Different Place site, it contains links to many good sites.  If you’re willing to spent the time wading through the links, I’m sure you will find some good lesson plan ideas for your gifted students.
