While I was looking for resources for an upcoming presentation about Depth and Complexity, I found “Envision Gifted.” Marcie Griffith’s site offers many ideas and examples for using the Depth and Complexity icons developed by Dr. Sandra Kaplan.
Be sure to click on the menu items at the top of the page to find suggestions on how to use Depth and Complexity for Math, Language Arts, and more. Many of the pages have free, downloadable pages to use with your students.
Depth and Complexity does not have to be reserved for use with gifted students. By integrating these icons into your classroom, you will find that students will apply the icons in ways that reflect their understanding of topics – giving you a naturally differentiated curriculum.
