Challenge me: differentiated curricula for gifted learners
This study examines GATE curricula in order to answer the following questions on differentiating instruction for gifted learners: What specific instructional resources exist for teachers to use in differentiating instruction for gifted learners? and Where can those resources be found? After conducting a survey with teachers, it was evident that many teachers have a hard time differentiating their curriculum for the gifted learner because of a lack of resources they are given. After searching for different GATE curricula, it was evident that there is much available, it just takes time to find it and often times get it ready for implementation with the students. The results suggest that if teachers are given the resources needed that are available to obtain, the needs of gifted learners would be better met in the classroom.
