Education for gifted students

First and foremost gifted children have to be educated different than normal children. They have to be challenged more often because they will move at a much faster pace. If the pace slows down they will become bored and unruly. This requires lots of planning from the educators. There is limited resources for teacher and parents to use and we hope to help here with some ideas and suggestions.

Normal school classrooms have lessons and test planned in advance and most of the students fit into that plan. The gifted student has to have a different plan. They will need extra material to challenge them and keep them moving. This may be something simple as doubling the assignment but a better way is to have more of an assignment on the same material. There is also other programs from Odyssey of the Mind or Destination Imagination. Other modification could come from academic competitions from Brain Bowl, national History Day, Science Fairs, Future Problem Solving or other online assignment sites.

Gifted children need to be tested frequently to determined what material they already know and adjust their assignments according. This test need to be monthly or even weekly to keep up with the pace of the student.

There is self pacing methods like the Montessori method that will help children advance at their own pace. This is found to be helpful with all students as most can go at a faster pace than the school systems is requiring them. Remember the school systems pace is to the slowest student. This is not helpful for most of the students and there would be a lot more students recognized as gifted if they didn't slow down the pace of learning for the slowest students.

Students that are more advanced will cover more material in a shorter period of time. This will lead to skipping grades and even entering college before other students the same age graduate high school. Some colleges have early entrance programs designed just for this opportunity of the gifted student.

Teacher and parents need to keep several things in mind. The gifted child has to be challenged on a daily basis, plans have to be made in advance as time frames move much faster with a gifted child. The gifted student would be best suited to be in the same class with other gifted students. This will help being bored and keep the pace fast.
