THE CHALLENGE. A PROGRAM FOR GIFTED CHILDREN IN THE EIGHTH GRADE.
CARTER, C. DOUGLAS; AND OTHERS
IDEAS INCLUDED ARE THE PRODUCTS OF AN INTENSIVE WORKSHOP HELD TO STUDY THE PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATION OF EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED CHILDREN. A PROGRAM WAS DEVELOPED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED STUDENT AND TO PROVIDE ENRICHMENT EXPERIENCES FOR ALL CHILDREN. IMPROVEMENT WAS SOUGHT IN THE SKILLS OF ABSTRACT THINKING, ORGANIZATION, JUDGMENT, CREATIVE WRITING, AND ABILITY TO ENGAGE IN GROUP ACTIVITIES. A NUCLEUS OF PURPOSEFUL PLANNING IS PRESENTED IN OUTLINE FORM IN EACH SUBJECT, SO THAT A TEACHER MAY BROADEN THE SCOPE OF THE REQUIRED COURSES OF STUDY. IN HOPES OF EQUIPPING EACH STUDENT WITH SKILLS NECESSARY TO FACE THE PROBLEM OF HIS GENERATION, NINE PROBLEM AREAS OF STUDY ARE SUGGESTED--SELF-DEVELOPMENT, UNDERSTANDING MY FELLOWMAN, CHOOSING A VOCATION, DUTIES AS CITIZENS, LIVING TOGETHER IN OUR COMMUNITY, GOVERNMENT, OUR ECONOMIC SYSTEM, OUR RESOURCES, AND THE STUDY OF OUR ARTS. SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICAL PROBLEM AREAS FOR ENRICHMENT CONCLUDE THE GUIDE.
