Renewal of Integrated Curriculum for ELA 20A/History 20A for the Saskatoon Public School Division’s Saskatoon Academically Gifted Education (SAGE) Program


  • Brad Shonenfeld University of Saskatchewan


The purpose of this project is to create a locally modified curriculum for the Saskatoon Public School Division’s, Saskatoon Academically Gifted Education (SAGE) program. This renewed curriculum will integrate two currently offered regular curricula, English Language Arts 20 and History 20. Using research-supported methods of curriculum compacting and subsequent enrichment, this renewed curricula will provide the appropriate challenge to meet the specific learning needs of identified gifted learners within the SAGE program. The new curriculum format will be taken from various existing models of differentiation specific to gifted education to best fit the current program structure offered in the secondary SAGE program.
