THE SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST AND THE EDUCATION OF GIFTED CHILDREN.
MARTINSON, RUTH
IN IDENTIFYING THE GIFTED CHILD, THE TEACHER SHOULD BE ALERT AS TO WHETHER THE CHILD LEARNS EASILY AND RAPIDLY. OTHER FACTORS THAT CAN BE USED TO IDENTIFY THE GIFTED ARE A LARGE AMOUNT OF ENERGY AND A LARGE VOCABULARY. ALSO IMPORTANT ARE THE CHILD'S UNUSUAL POWER OF OBSERVATION, INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY, UNUSAL POWER OF CONCENTRATION, AND CREATIVE OR UNUSUAL IDEAS. TESTING SHOULD BE USED FOR ALL GIFTED PUPILS IN ORDER TO DETERMINE MORE ACCURATELY THE LEVEL AND CHARACTER OF THEIR INTELLECTUAL FUNCTIONING. CONTACTS WITH THE PARENTS ARE NECESSARY, BECAUSE TEACHERS ASSIST PARENTS IN WORKING PROPERLY WITH THE CHILD AND SECURE INFORMATION WHICH WILL BE OF SERVICE IN PLANNING THE CHILD'S EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES. AREAS SUGGESTED TO DISCUSS WITH PARENTS WERE LISTED AND INCLUDED SUCH SUBJECTS AS ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS, HOBBIES, ATTITUDES TOWARD THE SCHOOLS, AND MOTIVATIONAL PROBLEMS. FORMS USED FOR GATHERING INFORMATION ABOUT THE GIFTED SHILD ASKED FOR BASIC INFORMATION, THE CHILD'S HISTORY, A HEALTH REPORT, AND A PUPIL INTEREST SURVEY.
