Students who are gifted and advanced learners somehow manage, with or without specific interventions, to achieve at advanced levels on assessments related to the common curriculum specified in Ohio’s Learning Standards. But without continuing access to advanced curriculum, the intellectual development of these students will be unsupported, and their achievement will suffer.
Moreover, even when accelerated, differentiated grade-level instruction at the new level may also be insufficient. These students need access to advanced curriculum to experience intellectual challenge and grow intellectually. That’s why—even with acceleration—access to advanced curriculum is important for students who are gifted and advanced learners.
