The Curriculum Studies Network believes that work in the area of curriculum forms the core basis for programs for gifted learners and thus must be carried out in a thoughtful, comprehensive, and articulated way. Furthermore, we believe that curriculum for the gifted should be organized to allow gifted learners to move at their own rates, to provide in-depth experiences, to offer exposure to new knowledge areas, and to make interdisciplinary connections. Specifically, the Network undertakes projects and activities that: 1) develop standards for curriculum development processes including evaluation, scope, and sequence; 2) develop a working relationship and mutual projects with other national curriculum groups; 3) provide a clearinghouse of appropriate curriculum materials for gifted students; and 4) promote research and development in curriculum for gifted students.
