The HCPTWG has published two of its proposed recommendations for public comment. The first is the definition of a highly capable learner, and the second details the identification process. The draft definition can be viewed here. The identification document is a bit longer, and has been attached here for your viewing.
Gayle Pauley asked this of those reviewing the proposed recommendations:
As you reflect on the attached definition of what a Highly Capable student is, please keep the questions below in mind as you provide feedback.
1. Any errors of commission: Have we included things that are not needed or will be “red flags?”
2. Any errors of omission: Have we left out any key on essential ideas, concepts, things?
3. Unintended consequences: Do you foresee any unintended consequences or difficulties that will emerge as a result of this?
4. Any additional advice you have for the HCP Technical Working Group?
You can send comments to the HCPTWG directly (the most preferred option), comment here, or e-mail the Coalition with any questions or concerns. The Coalition is well represented on the HCPTWG and will try to represent your thoughts during the next HCPTWG meeting.
