Bridging the Gap 10 Years Later: A Tool and Technique to Analyze and Evaluate Advanced Academic Curricular Units
Beasley, Jennifer G.; Briggs, Christine; Pennington, Leighann
Gifted Child Today, v40 n1 p48-58 Jan 2017
The need for a shared vision concerning exemplary curricula for academically advanced learners must be a priority in the field of education. With the advent of the Common Core State Standards adoption in many states, a new conversation has been ignited over meeting the needs of students with gifts and talents for whom the "standard" curriculum is not a good fit. The purpose for this article is to highlight the current need for high-quality curriculum, discuss how the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) Curriculum Awards rubric has been updated to reflect the research in the field, and look at additional ways to use the NAGC Curriculum rubric as a tool to support the development of quality curriculum and to select and award exemplary curricula for addressing advanced academic needs of students with gifts and talents.
