ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS FOR THE SUPERIOR STUDENT.
OLSON, HELEN F.
THE SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS DEFINED THE SUPERIOR STUDENT AS ONE WHO COULD ASSOCIATE AND INTERRELATE CONCEPTS AND COULD CRITICALLY EVALUATE FACTS AND ARGUMENTS. HE COULD CREATE NEW IDEAS AND ORIGINATE NEW LINES OF THOUGHT, HE HAD THE ABILITY TO REASON COMPLEX PROBLEMS THROUGH AS WELL AS TO UNDERSTAND OTHER SITUATION, OTHER TIMES, AND OTHER PEOPLE. THESE STUDENTS THEN SHOULD BECOME ACQUAINTED WITH A VARIETY OF LITERARY WORKS, USING THESE WORKS FOR ANALYTICAL DISCUSSIONS AND WORKING THROUGH THESE DISCUSSIONS TO INDIVIDUAL THOUGHT AND EXPRESSION. THE CLASS EXPERIENCES SHOULD BE BOTH VERTICAL ACCELERATION (MOVING AHEAD TO MORE ADVANCED WORK) AND HORIZONTAL ENRICHMENT (EXPLORING MORE SENSITIVE AND MATURE READING, SPEAKING AND WRITING). THE THREE DIFFERENT KINDS OF CLASSROOM SITUATIONS FOR THE SUPIOR STUDENT WERE INDIVIDUAL OR SMALL-GROUP HELP IN A HETEROGENEOUS CLASS, HONORS CLASSES, AND ADVANCED PLACEMENT CLASSES. HELP FOR SUPERIOR STUDENTS BEGAN IN SEVENTH GRADE AND WAS CARRIED THROUGH TWELFTH GRADE. MATERIAL IN THE GUIDE CAME FROM SUMMER WORKSHOPS AND CONTRIBUTIONS OF TEACHERS. OTHER MATERIAL CAME FROM THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH SUMMER INSTITUTES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON AND ENGLISH PROGRAMS FOR SUPERIOR STUDENTS. THE MATERIALS INCLUDED INFORMATION CONCERNING THE ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM, SYLLABI FOR HONORS CLASSES, TEACHING UNITS, AND PARALLEL LESSONS FOR REGULAR AND HONORS CLASSES AT VARIOUS GRADE LEVEL.
