Make-a-Twist is a resource intended to make the education of gifted students practical and accessible.

Designed for upper primary to middle school students, it supports teachers/parents/students to identify, select and implement strategies that are aligned with current curriculum and assessment tasks.

Make-a-Twist puts into action the principles of C. June Maker’s curriculum modification strategies (the ‘Maker model’) in a way that is complex and challenging, therefore appropriate and engaging for high-ability students.
