Course Description:

This course is designed to reach out to the gifted student, someone who is often left behind in the classroom. The course begins by identifying who the gifted are, how they learn, and how to push them to higher achievement. We will develop pre-tests to avoid re-teaching material that students have already mastered, exploring new ways to challenge the gifted students and keep them focused. Curriculum for gifted students will be examined and modified, developing problem solving skills that incorporate multiple levels of intelligence. The goal is to develop a classroom that is conducive to the special needs of the gifted student.
