Resource Guide for Gifted and Talented Programs.
Ching, Pearl; Hee, Vivian
Designed for regular classroom as well as special class teachers, the guide is intended to help implement a differentiated curriculum for gifted and talented students. An overview of a synergistic approach to gifted education is followed by a list of 10 major steps in implementing gifted and talented programs. Each of the steps is then examined in separate chapters: (1) program goals and objectives, (2) identification, (3) administrative arrangements, (4) needs assessment of gifted and talented students, (5) differentiated curriculum (including content, process, and product modifications), (6) instruction in the disciplines (suggestions for language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, fine arts, languages, health and physical education, career education, and practical arts and vocational technical education), (7) unit and lesson planning (examples based on such models as the Enrichment Triad, creative problem solving, and critical thinking), (8) implementation of plans, (9) student products and performances, and (10) evaluation (with recommendations for evaluation instruments).
