Abstract

Honors programs are designed to provide talented students the opportunity to excel with a group of peers having a similar level of ability, motivation, and prior academic achievement. A problem that results is Honors Programs and education programs rarely interface, and thus, current models do not optimally serve the gifted adult who will become a science teacher. Gifted students are not easily identified in the science methods class. Notices about involvement from Honors Programs are often not forwarded to people in teacher education programs. Such lack of information means that science methods instructors must identify the students without benefit of Honors Program insight. This chapter discusses identification and curriculum for gifted adults.
