The 10 steps are: (1) Know How Students Learn; (2) Know Best Practice Research for Gifted Programming and Services; (3) Differentiate the Curriculum Content for Gifted Learners; (4) Develop Service Options Specific to Promising Students of Poverty; (5) Teach Students to Ask the Right Questions; (6) Incorporate the Arts; (7) Prepare Students for a Global and Multicultural World; (8) Prepare Educators to Provide Quality Instruction; (9) Create and Institutionalize Systems for Identifying and Serving Gifted Students, K-12; and (10) Collaborate With Other Stakeholders Within and Outside the Field of Gifted Education to Promote Student Learning Communities.
