Curriculum Extension for the Gifted and Talented Student with Limited English Proficiency.
Marquez, Judith A.; Sawyer, Cheryl B.
This paper offers suggestions for meeting the special needs of gifted and talented (GT) students of limited English proficiency (LEP) through an extension of the differentiated curriculum. An overview of the differentiated curriculum is offered, and issues that must be addressed in meeting the needs of the GT/LEP student are discussed. Teaching strategies and methods that can be used in GT/LEP instruction, and recommended teacher characteristics, are also outlined. It is concluded that although no specific pre-packaged curriculum can be recommended to meet the needs of GT/LEP students, the criteria discussed here should be used in developing instructional strategies for this population. The curriculum, when extended using the criteria recommended here, is seen as providing the necessary foundation for both cognitive and linguistic development. (Author/MSE)
