Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Educators are continually searching for ways to meet the unique needs of gifted and talented students. Many questions must be addressed when deciding what would be most effective m accomplishing this goal. Will gifted and talented students be served in the regular classroom or through a pullout program which requires them to leave their regular classroom for their gifted program? If they are removed from the regular classroom, what subjects will they miss? What curriculum will they complete in the program? Are students accelerated through the course work or is enrichment provided? Who will teach the gifted and talented students? Who will participate in the program? How will it be funded? At a time when expectations of education are high and funding 1 for education is tight, getting the most effective program for the least amount of money is a priority (Davis & Rimm 1994 ).
