REGULATIONS AND PROCEDURES RELATED TO SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR MENTALLY GIFTED MINORS.
MERRIHEW, JAMES L.
IDENTIFICATION OF MENTALLY GIFTED STUDENTS WAS BASED ON A SCORE OF 130 OR ABOVE ON THE REVISED STANFORD-BINET SCALE, A SCORE AT OR ABOVE THE 98TH PERCENTILE ON A GROUP TEST OF MENTAL ABILITY AND ON A STANDARDIZED TEST OF READING OR MATHEMATICS ACHIEVEMENT, AND THE JUDGMENTS OF TEACHERS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS. GIFTED CHILDREN SHOULD OBTAIN AT AN EARLIER AGE AND TO A GREATER DEGREE THAN OTHER CHILDREN, MOST OBJECTIVES. THE OBJECTIVES OF EDUCATION FOR GIFTED CHILDREN SHOULD NOT DIFFER MATERIALLY FROM THOSE OF ALL OTHER CHILDREN. THE MOST IMPORTANT AREAS OF OBJECTIVES FOR GIFTED CHILDREN WERE EFFECTIVE THINKING, BASIC SKILLS, CITIZENSHIP, UNDERSTANDING OF ENVIRONMENT, APPRECIATION OF BEAUTY, WORLD UNDERSTANDING, CHARACTER AND HUMAN RELATIONS, AND VOCATIONAL COMPETENCE. GIFTED CHILDREN SHOULD BE GRADED IN RELATION TO THE TOTAL SCHOOL POPULATION, NOT AS A SEPARATE GROUP. THESE GIFTED CHILDREN SHOULD NOT RECEIVE LESS THAN A "B". AREAS FOR STUDY IN SECONDARY EDUCATION INCLUDED THE AREAS IN ELEMENTARY EDUCATION, BUT WITH A GREATER EMPHASIS ON DEPTH. SOME AREAS STRESSED WERE COMMUNICATION, REFERENCE ACTIVITIES, AND ENRICHMENT IN SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS.
