Gifted and Talented Statement

  • Gifted and talented (GT) students in both academic and artistic domains possess learning characteristics and needs that differ from those of their chronological peers. With traits that fall into three clusters (precocity, intensity, and complexity), gifted and talented students typically learn faster, desire greater depth of content, and concentrate on tasks longer based on interest or strength (Tassel-Baska & Brown, 2007). These differences call for challenging, real-world educational opportunities that provide essential resources and support for learning growth.
