Overview

This handbook illustrates how to design a new program for talent development or redesign and revitalize an existing program in a school or district. Ideal for coordinators of gifted programs, school administrators, and special education directors, this resource focuses on a contemporary, inclusive approach to nurture students' strengths and talents.

The authors present a research-based six-stage planning model to guide the planning process and identify specific procedures for organizing and implementing the model at the district or school levels. The six stages of planning cover:

  • Preparing for program implementation
  • Assessing the climate for supporting contemporary programming
  • Setting goals and creating an action plan
  • Designing and delivering activities and services
  • Identifying students' interests, strengths, and characteristics
  • Evaluating the program to ensure quality, innovation, and continuous improvement

Readers will also find a CD-ROM containing reproducible resources, presentations, and templates.
