Curriculum Guidelines for the Gifted and Talented: Report of the Connecticut Task Force on Curriculum. Working Draft.
White, Alan J., Ed.; Campbell, Annie L., Comp.
The report (in working draft form) of the Connecticut Task Force on Curriculum for the Gifted and Talented summarizes three theoretical models for curriculum planning, gives an overview of elementary and secondary curricula currently being used in Connecticut school districts, and provides an annotated bibliography on curriculum development. Stressed is a view of curriculum which includes both product and process variables in a differentiated curriculum. Explained with examples are the application to curriculum for the gifted on the following models: J. P. Guilford's Structure of Intellect model, the Taxonomy of Educational Objectives developed by B. Bloom, and the Cognitive-Affective interaction model of F. Williams which identifies key pupil behaviors, teacher behaviors, and curriculum content. Briefly described are curricula currently being used in approximately 25 Connecticut school districts including district-wide, regional, arts-oriented, academic, semi-separated, consultative, well-established, and pilot programs. Lists of materials being used in the programs are provided. The final section consists of an extensive bibliography on curriculum development including an annotated listing of approximately 45 curriculum materials or articles on curriculum development, and approximately 30 abstracts of selected materials.
