let me expand on this.

i was in a school for the gifted AND i was pulled out a lot. in 7th grade, i basically had my own curriculum and continued with special lessons all throughout my education.

my brothers did this as well.

Same here nan I was pulled aside every second day, given the speed drills by staring into this covered optical viewer and pressing certain buttons for certain patterns.

I was allowed to stay in the library and read all day if I wanted to.. the regular curriculum didn't seem to be as challenging for me as it was for the other students.

I was encouraged to write short stories about the news events I'd seen on television. Sometimes they'd let me watch those duck and cover type documentaries and write short essays on what I felt about those..

I remember laughing at them and telling them that I think they just wanted all the bodies in a nice neat pile.

They didn't have a name for the program here in Northern Ontario all they would say is that it was a pilot project for gifted children.

we were also allowed to research whatever we wanted to at the libary. writing was a big focus.

we had selected titles we focused on as well. had to examine: brave new world, 1984, grapes of wrath, of mice and men... all in 4th/5th grade.
