Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Inservicing classroom teachers in compacting, independent study, and mentoring may help them become more effective in meeting the instructional needs of talented and gifted students. It is easier for teachers to apply learning if it is easily applicable to their own classroom instruction, and if the learning seems manageable for the teacher. This project includes an inservice model that contains applicable teaching strategies and an inservice plan for teachers. Teaching talented and gifted students through appropriate teaching strategies and becoming aware of these students' needs in the classroom can assure that students are challenged to realize their full learning potential. This project presents research to support examples of inservice teaching strategies for the instruction of the talented and gifted. It also offers suggestions for conducting effective teacher inservices on meeting the special needs of the talented and gifted student in the regular classroom.
