PEGASUS: Providing Enrichment for the Gifted: Adapting Selected Units of Study.
Lewis, Christine L.; And Others
The document is designed to assist teachers in modifying instruction to meet the special needs of high ability students, to help educators in effective organization of their plans for individualizing instruction, and to provide information on individualizing an educational program for gifted students. The format is set up so that it describes a series of strategies based upon the goals and behaviors of the gifted education curriculum manual GEMINI (Gifted Education Manual for Individualizing Networks of Instruction). Each strategy is coded for domain of emphasis (cognitive, affective); instructional area (independent study, critical thinking, creativity, communication, personal development); goal; and behavior upon which it is based (verbal, nonverbal, interpretive). Information is also given for strategy procedures; level (primary, intermediate, junior high); and structure (individual, group). Part I focuses on the cognitive domain with strategies relating to the Salt Talks, constructive destruction, clothing, and humor; while Part II addresses the affective domain with strategies relating to the origins of people.
