Explore techniques to improve instruction to all students in advanced programs and bring gifted education pedagogy into regular classrooms more effectively. Ideas from Renzuilli to Bloom to Torrance are discussed and demonstrated while participants investigate information on gifted research, gifted program models and gifted curriculum programming. Many school services for gifted and talented students are part-time opportunities outside of the regular classroom. In this class, consider methods to provide more occasions to enhance learning opportunities within the regular classroom for these students. This course also looks at the theory that gifted education can address not only the needs of children who already manifest high levels of various kinds of intelligence, but may also promote the emergence and development of talent and intelligence in children who have potentials but may not have had the opportunity to develop them.
