GUIDE TO PLANNING FOR ABLE STUDENTS. CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT SERIES NO. 2.
BISH, CHARLES E.; AND OTHERS
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PUBLICATION IS THREEFOLD--(1) TO FACILITATE THE ORGANIZATION OF OUTSTANDING PROGRAMS BY DIRECTING ATTENTION TO THE ORIENTATION OF A GOOD PROGRAM AND TO THE ROLE OF ADMINISTRATORS AND FACULTY IN ITS IMPLEMENTATION, (2) TO ASSIST IN THE IMPROVEMENT, ARTICULATION, AND EVALUATION OF PROGRAMS ALREADY UNDERWAY, AND (3) TO FOREWARN OF POSSIBLE DIFFICULTIES IN AND DETERRENTS TO PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT. THE ABLE YOUTH SHOULD HAVE BOTH ACCELERATION AND ENRICHMENT. AN IMPROVED PROGRAM FOR ABLE STUDENTS WILL BENEFIT THE EDUCATION OF ALL CHILDREN IN THE SCHOOL. THE ADMINISTRATOR MUST PLAN WELL, PROVIDE THE NEEDED RESOURCES, AND STRIVE FOR A BALANCED PROGRAM DEVELOPING BOTH ACADEMIC AND CREATIVE TALENT. THE PROGRAM MUST BE IMPLEMENTED BY TALENTED TEACHERS, ALERT GUIDANCE COUSELORS, AND WELL-MAINTAINED FACILITIES. ALTHOUGH PLANNING IS DIRECTED AT THE LOCAL LEVEL, THE ABLE STUDENT MUST BE CONSIDERED IN A LARGER CONTEXT. A REALISTIC PROGRAM MUST CONCERN THE WHOLE STUDENT BODY. EVALUATION IS IMPORTANT TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE PROGRAM FOR ABLE STUDENTS ACHIEVES ITS PURPOSE. BACKGROUND MATERIALS ARE INCLUDED IN THE STUDY.
