"Gifted learners need learning experiences that are rich.  That is, they need learning experiences that are organized by key concepts and principles of a discipline rather than by facts.  They need content that is relevant to their lives, activities that cause them to process important ideas at a high level, and products that cause them to grapple with meaningful problems and pose defensible solutions.  They need classrooms that are respectful to them, provide both structure and choice, and help them achieve more than they thought they could.  These are needs shared by all learners, not just those who are gifted.  But good instruction for gifted learners must begin there."
