Maximizing Your Classroom Time for Authentic Science: Differentiating Science Curriculum for the Gifted.
The academic needs of gifted students are qualitatively different from those of regular students. This document describes a course that is differentiated for gifted students in the areas of content, process, learning environment, and product. Emphasis is placed on higher order thinking skills through independent study dealing with real world problems that add scope, depth, and acceleration to the course. The teacher-designed and student-designed activities described are tied to curriculum objectives and various thinking and learning models. They allow for individualizing the curriculum and self-paced learning in the student's preferred learning style. (Author)
