Published on

These icons for universal concepts of depth, complexity, and context were developed by Dr. Sandra Kaplan of USC for teachers to differentiate teaching of gifted students. Our teachers at San Jose Highly Gifted Magnet School were among those who helped Mrs. Kaplan field test and develop the icons, which is used throughout LAUSD and many other school districts.
