BENJAMIN, FLORENCE O.
AS A GUIDE FOR TEACHERS OF GIFTED STUDENTS, THIS MANUAL COVERS THE BASIC CONTENT AREAS PROVIDED FOR ALL PUPILS ON THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL, BUT THE MATERIALS AND EXPERIENCES DISCUSSED ARE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE BOTH BREADTH AND DEPTH. THE NATURE OF THE SOCIAL STUDIES PROGRAM FOR THE GIFTED IN JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL INVOLVES A MINIMUM USE OF THE BASAL TEXTBOOK, PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO CURRENT AFFAIRS, ACQUAINTANCE WITH THE HISTORICAL METHOD, DEVELOPMENT OF SKILLS SUCH AS GENERALIZATIONS AND RELATIONSHIPS, AND ATTENTION TO WORK HABITS AND STUDY SKILLS. THE SOCIAL STUDIES PROGRAM FOR GIFTED STUDENTS IS DESIGNED TO INSTILL IN THE PUPILS SOME IMPORTANT SKILLS WHICH HELP EACH STUDENT TO MAKE THE MOST OF HIS CONTACT WITH THE SOCIAL STUDIES CONTENT AREAS. SOME OF THESE SKILLS INCLUDE USING OF BOOKS, USING OF LIBRARY FACILITIES, ORGANIZING INFORMATION, COMPILING BIBLIOGRAPHY, OUTLINING, NOTE TAKING, DISTINGUISHING BETWEEN FACT AND OPINION AND PROPAGANDA, DRAWING CONCLUSIONS FROM DATA, INTERPRETING MAPS AND GLOBES, DEVELOPING SENSE OF CHRONOLOGY, PREPARING WRITTEN RESEARCH REPORTS, AND PROBLEM SOLVING. AN INTEGRAL PART OF THIS PROGRAM FOR GIFTED CHILDREN IS EVALUATION. STUDENTS SHOULD BE GIVEN OPPORTUNITY FOR SELF-EVALUATION. TEACHERS OF GIFTED STUDENTS SHOULD EVALUATE PROGRAM OUTCOME BY THE DEGREE OF KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING, CRITICAL THINKING, STUDY HABITS, VALUES AND ATTITUDES, AND PARTICIPATION IN GROUP DISCUSSIONS WHICH WAS DEVELOPED IN EACH PUPIL.
