The GATEway: Gifted and Talented Education in California Public Schools.
Plowman, Paul D.
The booklet presents an overview of California's GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program. Following a brief introduction, the booklet presents a rationale and statement of program goals along with a discussion of legislative intent. Standards for quality programing are outlined. A model depicts the three major GATE components: (1) identification categories (such as intellectual, creative, and leadership); (2) program options (including acceleration, independent study, and services to underachieving pupils); and (3) elements (such as differentiated opportunities for learning and alternative learning environments). Financial aspects are addressed, as are criteria for evaluation. The booklet concludes with questions and answers about the GATE program. (CL)
