School Provisions for Gifted, Talented and Able Students: A Response to Freeman
Vidergor, Hava
Gifted and Talented International, v27 n2 p59-63 2012
In this response to Joan Freeman's "A Quality of Giftedness," Have Vidergor states that provisions for gifted, talented, and excellent students should be offered by regular schools, taking into consideration levels of giftedness, offering a variety of interdisciplinary elective courses and subjects to about 20% of the school population, along with other more drastic measures including subject or grade skipping, mentoring, dual enrolment, etc. These measures need to be well thought out involving the individual student, his/her parents, school educational staff headed by school principal, gifted coordinator, and school psychologist. Curriculum needs to follow a model or combination of models suitable for gifted, talented, or able students. School provisions are not to be regarded as competing with other opportunities of enrichment offered by regional pullout gifted education centers, afternoon programs offered by municipal authorities, or summer programs offered by universities. All these could be combined to best suit the individual student's needs. Substantial continuous programs which answer the student's academic, emotional, and social needs could contribute to his well being and prepare him/her for a fulfilling and creative life in adulthood.
