The economic, cultural, and social development of nations depends on the creativity and productivity of its most gifted citizens. Developing the gifts and talents of young people is the best way to invest in expanding the reservoir of future scientists, authors, inventors, entrepreneurs, and persons who will contribute to the cultural heritage of a country.

This presentation will provide an overview of a talent development model that is based on over forty years of research and development and that is being used in countless schools in the U.S. and in a number of other nations around the world. Topics include comprehensive strength assessment, modifying the curriculum for high achieving students, using technology to provide enrichment opportunities for all students, and guidelines for providing advanced level creative and investigative activities and projects. Emphasis will be on practical applications and implementation of a talent development model. The theoretical and research aspects of our work will be highlighted by providing several examples of the creative and productive work of students work and descriptions of schools using this plan.
