Curricula for the Gifted and Talented. 1985 Digest.
Plowman, Paul D.
The digest examines issues related to curricula for gifted and talented students. Schools should be prepared to meet the special needs of this population in a variety of ways, including identifying their learning needs, making equipment and resources available, providing for flexible progression through learning experiences and grades, and monitoring the extent to which curriculum goals and objectives are accomplished and the needs of pupils met. Curriculum should meet a variety of student needs, including association with intellectual peers; access ideas, persons, and environments that lead to creative and productive thought; and experiences of support from guidance personnel. Curriculum modifications may include special learner objectives and classroom dialogue for intellectually gifted students. Modifications in specific academic categories may be accomplished with subject matter specialists at school district and county levels. A brief resource listing concludes the digest. (CL)
