In this paper our interest is directed on pedagogy for gifted children. Gifted are exceptional children with special qualities and needs and we try showing our preoccupations towards the problematic of children with high potential towards finding the most adequate methods for developing their potential according with their interest. This aspect is marked by the necessity of recognizing individual differences. Gifted children need adequate educational opportunities to develop their inborn aptitude potential. So that we tried to draw a model which could be implemented to the level of gifted children in order to develop their inborn potentials. With a view to educating gifted children, specialists in the field have worked out many methods and procedures. Of the multitude of procedures and methods we shall, in this study, concentrate upon a methodology that combines several methods: amplification, enrichment of the curriculum, blending with differentiation/individualization of instruction in heterogeneous levels classes and mentoring outside classes, which we shall integrate into a formative strategy called by us Personalized Model of Education for Gifted Children. The main components of this special methodology are: enrichment of the curriculum, differentiation of instruction and mentoring for gifted children. The activities proposed will be implemented as special academic programs in the regular classroom, or as a pull-in/out-of class programs. The list of the full curriculum units is based on selections from the domains of interest of the gifted children: music, art, math, language, chemistry, physics, and many others. The students will be able to develop their inborn aptitude in an appropriate way. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
