To provide direction to school systems and individual schools as they plan, develop, and implement new programs, this guide sets forth criteria for curricula geared toward gifted and talented students. The criteria are also intended as a tool for schools to use in assessing and improving their current offerings for students. An introduction provides a definition of "gifted and talented" as defined by the Maryland State Department of Education and discusses goals of gifted education. Six major program components are then addressed in outline format: (1) identification of students, (2) the instructional program, (3) teacher selection, (4) staff development, (5) program management, and (6) evaluation.
