Curriculum Design and Development for Gifted Students: A Guide to Building Curriculum That Cultivates Expertise, Character, and Self-Understanding Kimberley Chandler, Todd Kettler


Curriculum Design and Development for Gifted Students equips readers with the knowledge and skills to design and develop curriculum for use with gifted students. The authors build on the idea that curriculum is not an end in itself, but it is the means by which potential is transformed into expertise, character, and self-understanding. The book includes examples across grade levels and disciplines of ways that curriculum designers could pre-plan and include opportunities for teachers to customize and differentiate in the learning design. Readers will also explore potential trends and ideas that might impact how schools and curriculum teams think about and develop curriculum.
