Homeschooling parents and HSTs have the flexibility to modify curriculum to support the gifts and abilities of each individual student. We can add enrichment and extension activities for added rigor and challenge. For these reasons we don't have a GATE program.

The following resources may be helpful to HSTs and parents in planning curriculum materials and extension activities for students.

General Resources and Ideas:


This website is run by Ian Byrd, who is a teacher of gifted students. The website is full of amazing resources specifically geared to the gifted child. He has turned his teaching into videos and you can buy them. Parents could use their funds for a product order, it's only around $150. It's called Byrdseed TV and they are direct lessons that are focused on Depth and Complexity and other higher-level thinking skills. Perfect for the gifted student.
