Gifted and Talented
Gifted & Talented Program Guidelines
“An appropriate program for the gifted and talented reflects modification of content (what is taught and when it is taught- sequence and pacing), instructional strategies (how it is taught), and the setting (the environment in which learning occurs).
The regular instructional program must be modified and adapted to meet the unique learning styles, learning rates, interests, abilities, and needs of gifted and talented students. The differentiated instructional program for the gifted includes both elements that are different from and elements that are similar to those in the regular program for their chronological peers. While some aspects of the regular curriculum will need to be adapted, others will need to be added which may be quite unique for the gifted and talented population.” (MSDE)
