Rakow, Susan R.
Gifted Child Today, v31 n1 p43-49 Win 2008
Modern teachers live in age of accountability, in which their success as educators is determined by individual and group mastery of specific standards demonstrated by standardized test performance. Even before No Child Left Behind (NCLB), standards and measures were used to determine if schools and students were successful. But NCLB has increased the pace, intensity, and high stakes of this trend. Gifted and talented students are significantly impacted by these local or state proficiency standards and grade-level assessments. This article explores how to use these standards in the development of high-quality curriculum for gifted students. (Contains 1 figure.)
