Does an outcome-based curriculum provide opportunities for gifted students? Reflections on the new Queensland science curriculum
Diezmann, Carmel M. & Watters, James J. (2004) Does an outcome-based curriculum provide opportunities for gifted students? Reflections on the new Queensland science curriculum. Curriculum and Teaching, 19(1), pp. 27-43.
A new outcome-based (OBE) science syllabus has been developed as part of a general reform of teaching in the State of Queensland. Assumptions underpinning the new syllabus are challenging for classroom teachers to accept and enact. Hence, there is concern that the needs of special groups such as gifted students may not be addressed. This paper explores the philosophy and practices of implementing an OBE based curriculum in science to establish whether this curriculum provides appropriate educational opportunities for gifted students.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
