Alternatives for In-School Programming Designed to Meet the Cognitive and Affective Needs of Gifted Adolescents.
Gifted and talented adolescents have special educational and personal needs which call for special adaptations and supplements to the typical school program. A variety of services including counseling, advanced classes, college-level courses, seminars allowing for guided research on a topic of interest, exposure to the arts, opportunities for foreign language study, mentors, and identification and nurturance of vocational talents are suggested to meet those needs at the elementary, middle school and high school level. An individualized growth plan is also recommended to facilitate the matching of individual student needs with available services in school and in the community. A comprehensive model of services for gifted and talented secondary students is also presented, with suggestions in 11 areas, including advanced placement classes, math acceleration, and extra school learning and cultural experiences.
