Directed Study

Directed Study

The Gifted Directed Study, an elective course for gifted students, provides for carefully designed research experiences for individual TAG students under the supervision of a TAG teacher. The course is designed to encourage the development of the whole student as a researcher and problem solver. In collaboration with a TAG teacher, the student defines and schedules the directed study by contract. The majority of contract objectives are derived from the analysis, synthesis, and evaluation levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy, and the processes employed include the major elements of Treffinger’s creative problem solving techniques.
