The Reform Movement: Where Do Gifted Students Fit?
Fascilla, Paula, Ed.; And Others
This booklet addresses current research on the needs of gifted students and the relationship of these needs to the philosophy and intent of some of the major trends in educational reform and restructuring. Eight major reform trends are examined in terms of definitions, philosophy, key elements of the literature, examples of practical applications, strategies for success with gifted students, and examples of successful programs. The reform trends examined are: (1) grouping practices, (2) cooperative learning, (3) underachieving gifted students, (4) outcome based education, (5) integrated curriculum, (6) site-based management, (7) middle schools, and (8) business/education networks. Several references are provided for each trend summary. (DB)
