The article focuses on the use of enrichment, segregation and homogeneous grouping as titles for provisions for gifted children within the classroom setting. Enrichment pertains to the bringing up of greater challenge and stimulation into the school life of the gifted. Segregation in the framework of the regular classroom pertains to any organization in which specific students are selected for special groups. Homogenous grouping is inadequate for describing organizational modifications for gifted children because no two people are of the same kind.
