6th Grade Gifted Language and Literature

How can a final draft have spelling errors even after running the spell check?

Are the classification systems of living things and parts of speech similar?

How does the development of heroes in ancient myth compare to hero development in modern-day literature?

Questioning and problem posing are two of the techniques used in the sixth grade gifted program to modify the required sixth-grade language arts and literature content. These modifications make the content more abstract, complex, multifaceted, and open-ended, and thus more appropriate for advanced learners.

The distinction between the regular education program and the gifted program is in the academic level of the work, not the quantity of work. In this program, the teachers coach in response to individual strengths and interests, crafting lessons that balance risk-taking and support.

Curriculum and instruction are designed in ways to reinforce basic skills while helping students experience, accept, and embrace challenge.
