GIFTED CHILDREN

It is estimated that students who are gifted and highly talented encompass 5 to 15% of the
school-age population. These advances students can have increased capabilities in academics,
creativity, music, dance, art, and/or leadership. To teach gifted students, the teachers should be careful
about finding ways to support their learning process. They should compact the curriculum and provide
enrichment activities as well as provide environments that are stimulating, and address cognitive,
physical, emotional, and social needs of gifted children in the curriculum. During the program, some
practical recommendations will be focused on the ways of teaching gifted students.

 

Learning Outcomes:

All the participants will:

- Implement a multi-level and multi-dimensional curriculum.
- Differentiate the curriculum to address differences in the rate, depth, and pace of learning.

how to take responsibility for their learning.
