Curriculum Guide for Maximizing Student Potential in Required Subject Areas.
Richert, E. Susanne
This curriculum guide is intended to assist educators to maximize the performance of gifted students and others in required subject areas and is keyed to initiatives of the Kansas State Board of Education (KSBE). Part 1, the introduction, describes the guide's development, states the guide's purpose, specifies the students to be served, and considers program design for the gifted. Recommended program design policies address 10 areas including minimum time, budget, homogeneous grouping, and acceleration possibilities. Part 2 focuses on curriculum differentiation. This covers: (1) general principles (e.g., an integrated, nonfragmented approach and use of effective teaching methods and strategies); (2) process skills (students, products, and projects); (3) content modifications (principles, communication/language arts/reading, mathematics, science, and social studies); (4) teaching required skills; and (5) student evaluation. Part 3 addresses staff development and Part 4 specifically relates curriculum strategies to KSBE directions. (Contains 105 references.) (DB)
