Gifted/Talented Magnet School: Program Model/Curriculum Guide, 1983-1984.
Sny, Christopher L.
The curriculum guide for gifted and talented third and fourth grade students was developed in a 1-week teacher workshop. Introductory sections specify tasks and timelines, review characteristics of gifted and talented students, and describe the district's screening and identification process. The curriculum is based on a combination of acceleration and enrichment with a focus on developing thinking skills through creative learning tasks. Guidelines are offered for teaching creative problem solving. Objectives, sub-objectives, recommended teaching approaches and student activities, thinking levels, and resources are charted for language arts, reading, math, science (physical science, ecology, life science, and earth and space) and computertronics (problem solving with computers and computers in society). Separate sections consider an affective curriculum in addition to a unit on computers. (CL)
