Program and Service Models: Suggested Programs and Services for Identified Talented and Gifted Students, K-12. Technical Assistance Paper 3. Revised.
Balzer, Charlene, Ed.; Siewert, Bob, Ed.
This document explains Oregon requirements for identification and programming for gifted and talented students. Five simple rules for planning programs and services are listed. Flexible pacing options are discussed, including continuous progress, early entrance, grade skipping, concurrent enrollment, advanced level courses, credit by examination, and compact courses or curriculum. A chart displays organizational strategies for flexible pacing, such as cluster grouping, cross-grade grouping, special full-time class/school, special part-time class, individualized instruction, learning centers, independent study, mentorship/internship, and extended day or school year programs. An organizational model for program and service strategies is presented, based on a pyramid with regular classroom strategies at the base, options outside the regular classroom but within the school district in the mid-section, and opportunities outside of local district control at the top. Appendices contain a Staff Resource and Needs Assessment Survey, a sample pyramid of program and service options, and an example of a completed pyramid. (JDD)
