9 Scopus citations


A general framework consisting of four curricular dimensions (content, process, product, learning environment) and criteria for developing and judging appropriate curricula for gifted students are presented. The framework has been described in depth elsewhere, but here it has been adapted for application to the development of curricula for gifted preschool children. Examples of teaching activities and techniques appropriate for gifted preschool students can be generated from this framework.
