Nurturing Giftedness of Students in Schools: A Curriculum for Talent Development
David W. CHAN（陳維鄂）
The notion of developing a curriculum for talent development to nurture the gifts and talents of students in Hong Kong is explored through an overview of two exemplary curriculum models in gifted education and their applications in the Chinese Mainland and Hong Kong. It is suggested that a balanced and articulated curriculum for talent development could be designed to incorporate acceleration and enrichment options as in the talent search model and the schoolwide enrichment model. The importance of considering the social-emotional needs as well as the learning needs of students and evaluation research in curriculum development is emphasized.
