THE SUTHERLIN PROGRAM FOR "CREATIVE STUDENTS." SUMMARY.
SCOTT, RICHARD
IN THE SPRING OF 1961, TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED TO SEVENTH-GRADE STUDENTS TO IDENTIFY CREATIVITY WITHOUT REFERENCE TO INTELLIGENCE QUOTIENT OR ACHIEVEMENT. IN THE 2D YEAR THE TESTS WERE REFINED, AND A SECOND GROUP OF CREATIVE STUDENTS WAS FORMED. IN 1963, FIFTH-GRADE CLASSES WERE SET UP, IN ADDITION TO A THIRD SEVENTH-GRADE CLASS. TESTS FOR THE SECOND GRADE WERE PLANNED AND ADMINISTERED SUCCESSFULLY, USING TEACHER RATING AND PARENT RATING AS A THIRD FACTOR. TEACHERS FELT THE PROGRAM TO BE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL AND THOUGHT UNDERSTANDING AND MOTIVATION OF THE CHILDREN TO BE IMPORTANT. MANY SOURCES ARE QUOTED IN A SERIES OF SHORT STATEMENTS ABOUT CREATIVITY IN GENERAL. A FINAL ESSAY MAKES SUGGESTIONS FOR IDENTIFICATION OF CREATIVE CHILDREN AND TEACHERS THROUGH TESTS AND RATINGS. PROPER TREATMENT OF THE CREATIVE CHILD CAN BE ENCOURAGED BY PUTTING HIM IN A CLASS WITH A CREATIVE TEACHER.
