CurriculumTop of Page

A student raising his handWe believe that the innate abilities of gifted students must be developed and nurtured through participation in exciting and challenging instruction.  They require modified, differentiated curriculum in order to ensure their growth and success.  Differentiation for GATE students in the Eureka Union School District may include:
  • Modifying content (what students learn)
  • Modifying process (how students learn)
  • Modifying product (how students demonstrate their knowledge).  
Students may be placed in an advanced mathematics class or reading group, or may be provided extensions to the standard curriculum.  Curriculum for GATE students should emphasize critical and creative thinking skills.

GATE TeachersTop of Page

This certificate represents 30 hours of professional training specific to the needs of our gifted learners.
