THE CULLOWHEE STORY. A PROGRAM FOR SUPERIOR AND GIFTED STUDENTS.
BIXLER, HAROLD H.
WESTERN CAROLINA COLLEGE HAS, SINCE THE SUMMER OF 1958, PROVIDED A SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM FOR HIGHLY GIFTED CHILDREN (IQ SCORES 146 TO 210) IN THE 4TH, 5TH, AND 6TH GRADES. THE STUDENTS LIVED IN THE COLLEGE DORMITORIES WITH ADEQUATE SUPERVISION. THE PROGRAM INCLUDED SUPERVISED PHYSICAL ACTIVITY SIMILAR TO A SUMMER CAMP'S. MANY FIELD TRIPS AND SIMILAR ACTIVITIES ENRICHED THE REGULAR MORNING CLASSES. INTEGRATED WITH THE CHILDREN'S PROGRAM WAS A TEACHER-TRAINING PROGRAM. REPORTS OF TEACHERS, COUNSELORS, AND RESEARCHERS INVOLVED IN THE PROGRAM USED STUDENT DIALOGUE TO DEMONSTRATE THE SUCCESS OF THE PROGRAM. AN AUXILIARY PROGRAM WAS PROVIDED FOR BRIGHT ELEMENTARY STUDENTS (I.Q. 115 AND UP) TO STUDY A FOREIGN LANGUAGE. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WERE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE COLLEGE LEVEL COURSES IN THE 1959 THROUGH 1961 SESSIONS.
