Any 3 out of the four categories
How often can a student be tested for gifted eligibility?
Every other year
Scores from assessments that are CURRENT within TWO calendar years will be used to establish eligibility.
What happens after a student is referred for gifted by a parent/teacher/test score?
Their case is brought before an eligibility committee.
They are tested for gifted eligibility.

Cluster, Resource, Collaborative, and Advanced Content
What are the different Gifted Program models?
Cluster, Resource, Collaborative, and Pull-out
Resource = no more than 10 per week
Cluster Model = no more than 2 per day
Advanced Content = no limit
Collaborative Model = 8 segments per class, 3 classes + one gifted teacher
In the Resource model, what should the curricular focus be?
interdisciplinary enrichment activities with academic content foundation
the academic content of the subject that they are missing at the time of service
The curriculum for a Resource class should focus on interdisciplinary activities.
If you have a heterogeneous classroom (ability levels) with a small group of gifted kids in it who need an advanced curriculum in, say, Reading, what is the best model for service?
Cluster if the classroom teacher is gifted certified
Collaborative if the classroom teacher is gifted certified

autoatically referred for testing.
An Advanced Content class is a course (pull-out, homeroom, honors, etc.) that teaches kids in a specific content area that have demonstrated "exceptional ability and motivation" in
particular content area.
This year, which models are we using to serve kids at Statham through the gifted program?
All four modles
Only Advanced Content, Resource, and Cluster Models
Ms. Xiong: Advanced Content Reading and Science (whole class needs it)
Mr. Hammarlund: Collaborative Reading, ELA, and Science (for only the gifted kids who need it; served by Ms. Heinze and Ms. Clark))
Ms. Edwards: Advanced Content Reading and Science (whole class needs it)
Ms. Tuning: Cluster Science (for only the gifted kids in her class who need it)
Ms. Payne: Cluster Science (for only the gifted kids in her class who need it)
Ms. Heinze: 1st-5th Resource (pull-out for all gifted kids); 5th grade Advanced Content Reading (pull-out for kids who need it)
Ms. Clark: 4th Resource (pull-out for all gifted kids in 4th grade); 3rd-5th grade Advanced Content Math (pull-out for kids who need it)
If you have a student who you suspect of being gifted, what should you do?
Begin collecting work samples for the RTI process
