3.3.12 Individualized Academic Pathways in U.S. and International Schools: Rethinking Pace, Progression, Personalization, Programming and Purpose

Support provisions for gifted and highly able learners are insufficient when they are simply a facsimile of the established strategies, schedules, and structures in place for the neurotypical student. Truly addressing the needs of this population necessitates a rethinking of the 5 Ps (pace, progression, personalization, programming, and purpose). This session explores ways in which individualized academic pathways for students can be created and implemented within schools, including international ones, while keeping in mind the importance of talent development.
