Harnett County Schools Academically Gifted Curriculum K-8.
Harnett County School District, Lilington, NC.
The Harnett County (North Carolina) curriculum for academically gifted students in grades K-8 is presented. The program uses a consulting model to extend and enrich the academic curriculum according to students' individual needs. The curriculum guide is designed to be flexible while providing for a standard course of study throughout the school system, and aims to enhance and enrich but not replace the North Carolina Competency Based Curriculum. The curriculum covers language arts (reading, spelling, creative writing, grammar, and research skills), mathematics, field trips, computer skills, and science and social studies. Each content area is divided into learning activities for students in grades K-3 and 4-8. Suggested resources are listed throughout the curriculum guide. In addition, a list of 15 recommended readings for parents, teachers, and counselors is included, along with a list of 11 readings recommended for gifted students. The guide concludes with a chronological historical overview in chart form of gifted education in Harnett County. This oversize chart has been reduced to 8.5x11 size. (JDD)
