Balzer, Charlene, Ed.; Siewert, Bob, Ed.
Guidelines are offered to ensure a stimulating and challenging learning environment for gifted learners. Curriculum modifications are suggested in the areas of: (1) content (complexity, abstractness, and variety; organization; purpose and choice; interaction with peers; focus on issues, themes, or questions; and role of methodologist, technologist, and communicator); (2) process (study skills, research skills, thinking skills, creativity skills, and communication skills); (3) product (teacher's role, variety of products, quality products, and student involvement); and (4) environment (the teacher and the classroom). An appendix briefly outlines considerations for curriculum approaches, administrative options, and support services and resources required for program development. Another appendix lists eight recommended guides for curriculum development, 12 catalogs, and over 40 suggested materials for classroom use. (17 references) (JDD)
