Three things you must keep in mind:
• Pacing: You’ve got allow proper pacing of GT learners through the Standards. Students may
be working at much higher level of standards and/or capable of progressing through more
than one grade level in a single school year. Flexible pacing is key.
• Differentiation: It’s got to happen. The complexity of work must be greater with the GT
students. Creativity must be included in the rubric. Problem-based learning can work with
both of these.
• Curriculum Openness: The curriculum should not be limited by content area. GT students can
and should work across the curriculum, seamlessly blending all content areas. One of their
greatest strengths is the ability to see the interconnectedness of ideas and theories, and this
should be encouraged.
