Gifted and Talented Learners. Model Learner Outcomes.
Smith, Sarah J.
This publication provides examples of the types of services that may be provided to Minnesota gifted/talented students and the corresponding outcomes accomplished by students when such services are provided. The first chapter examines education system values, a philosophy of education, the mission of public education, and Minnesota State Board of Education Learner Goals. Chapter 2 contains recommended standards for service to gifted/talented students. Chapters 3 and 4 examine model learner outcomes, listing outcomes for curriculum-based services and for student-based services and offering guidelines for matching curriculum and services to outcomes. Chapter 5 discusses purposes of assessment and evaluation, describes tools and techniques, and provides examples of types of complex outcomes. Appendices contain: (1) a chart which describes the differences between gifted/talented students and their age peers in each domain of giftedness and their related educational needs; and (2) examples of differentiated plans, both curriculum-based and student-based. A list of nine suggested readings concludes the document. (JDD)
