This manuscript contains 13 curriculum units designed to enhance differentiated instruction for learners with special needs from grades 1-12, including gifted students. It integrates Benjamin S. Bloom's levels of cognitive understanding with Howard Gardner's eight domains of intelligence to provide a framework for individualized instruction. Each unit has activities for the eight multiple intelligences (logical-mathematical intelligence, linguistic intelligence, bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, spatial intelligence, musical intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence, and naturalistic intelligence) at each of Bloom's taxonomic levels: knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. The manuscript begins by explaining Bloom's and Gardner's contributions to educational research in the area of differentiated instruction, and then provides the following curriculum units: (1) "Solar System" (Jeff Hendrickson and Renee Hendrickson); (2) "Energy" (Chris Hiroto); (3) "Antarctica" (Amy La Jocies); (4) "Author Study of Chris Van Allsburg" (Linda Hurley Lord); (5) "Omnipotent Oceans" (Sheri Marshall); (6) "Starting a Home Business" (Vicki L. Malan); (7) "Fractions" (Denise C. Moriarty); (8) "Whole Numbers and Decimals" (Denise C. Moriarty); (9) "Geometry" (Denise C. Moriarty); (10) "Ancient Egypt" (Audrey C. Rule); (11) "Energy" (Cynthia Rust); (12) "Garden Plants" (Amy Smith); and (13) "Rain Forests" (Jaime Watson). (Contains 11 references.) (CR)
