EDUCATION OF INTELLECTUALLY GIFTED PUPILS IN LOS ANGELES CITY SCHOOLS.
COMMITTEE OF INTELLECTUALLY GIFTED PUPILS
THE BASIC PHILOSOPHY OF THE LOS ANGELES CITY SCHOOLS IS THAT EVERY PUPIL BE EXPECTED TO MAKE THE MOST OF HIS POTENTIALITIES, THAT EVERY PUPIL BE HELPED TO ATTAIN AS HIGH A LEVEL OF INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT AS IS POSSIBLE, THAT THERE BE DELIBERATE PLANS MADE TO IDENTIFY INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES, AND THAT MAXIMUM LEARNING SITUATIONS BE PROVIDED FOR PUPILS OF VARIED ABILITIES, INTERESTS, AND TALENTS. WHEN A PROGRAM FOR PUPILS OF VARIED ABILITIES, INTERESTS, AND TALENTS. WHEN A PROGRAM FOR INTELLECTUALLY GIFTED PUPILS IS PLANNED, ITS OBJECTIVES SHOULD NOT DIFFER MATERIALLY FROM THOSE FOR ALL PUPILS. HOWEVER, THE OBJECTIVES MAY BE ATTAINED AT AN EARLIER AGE AND SHOULD BE DEVELOPED TO A GREATER DEPTH. A RECOMMENDED GUIDANCE PROGRAM AND PROGRAMS FOR GIFTED CHILDREN AT THE ELEMENTARY SECONDARY, AND COLLEGE LEVELS ARE DISCUSSED. ENRICHMENT IN SELF-CONTAINED CLASSES, ABILITY GROUPING, AND ACCELERATION ARE THE THREE PRINCIPAL ADMINISTRATIVE PLANS THAT HAVE BEEN UTILIZED AT THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LEVEL. THE IMPORTANT FACTOR IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF PROGRAMS FOR INTELLECTUALLY GIFTED PUPILS AT THE SECONDARY LEVEL IS MOTIVATION TO ACHIEVE, TO CREATE, AND TO LEARN. AT THE COLLEGE LEVEL, A CERTAIN SEGMENT OF THE STUDENT POPULATION IS CAPABLE OF PROFITING FROM ENRICHED EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES. HONOR SOCIETIES, SPECIAL RECOGNITION, AND DEPARTMENTAL SEMINARS ARE SEVERAL OPPORTUNITIES AND HONORS OPEN TO GIFTED STUDENTS.
