Unified Program Design: Organizing Existing Programming Models, Delivery Options, and Curriculum
Rubenstein, Lisa DaVia; Ridgley, Lisa M.
Gifted Child Today, v40 n3 p163-174 Jul 2017
A persistent problem in the field of gifted education has been the lack of categorization and delineation of gifted programming options. To address this issue, we propose Unified Program Design as a structural framework for gifted program models. This framework defines gifted programs as the combination of delivery methods and curriculum models. By considering both the delivery methods and the curriculum, coordinators and teachers will be able to visualize the available options that address each component, making designing and describing gifted programs more consistent. Implications for research, evaluation, and program practice are also discussed.
