Accelerated Education Methods for Intellectually Gifted Secondary Students.
Reiss, Patricia L.; Follo, Eric J.
This literature review describes and evaluates five accelerative methods for teaching intellectually gifted students at the secondary level. The review stresses the importance of matching student characteristics and instructional type, citing research demonstrating that intellectually gifted students achieve at higher levels when their educational needs are assessed on an individual basis. The five programming options include: (1) curriculum compacting, (2) subject acceleration, (3) mentorships, (4) dual enrollment (in both high school and college), and (5) early admission to college. Discussion of each option contains a description, lists of advantages and disadvantages, and conclusions. A final discussion offers guidelines for matching student characteristics with each of the programming options. Appendices provide materials from the mentoring program of one school district.
