THE RAPID LEARNER. K-6.
YORK, GORDON L.; AND OTHERS
THE MOTIVATING CONCEPT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SYLLABUS WAS THAT THE INCREASING COMPLEXITY OF THE EDUCATIONAL TASK DEMANDS THAT WE MAKE SPECIAL PROVISIONS FOR THOSE WHO LEARN MORE RAPIDLY AND WHO CAN PROGRESS THROUGH THE CURRICULAR PROGRAM AT A GREATER SPEED. THESE STUDENTS SHOULD BE CHALLENGED THROUGH THE USE OF A VARIETY OF MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES. TECHNIQUES FOR IDENTIFYING THE RAPID LEARNER INCLUDE TEACHER OBSERVATION OF PUPIL CHARACTERISTICS, GRADES, ACHIEVEMENT TESTS, AND IQ TESTS. THE SUGGESTIONS FOR TEACHING ARE DIVIDED INTO THE SUBJECT AREAS OF--SCIENCE, SOCIAL STUDIES, LANGUAGE ARTS, AND MATHEMATICS. WITHIN EACH SUBJECT AREA THE MATERIAL IS PRESENTED AT APPROPRIATE GRADE LEVELS FROM KINDERGARTEN THROUGH THE SIXTH GRADE. A BIBLIOGRAPHY IS OFFERED AT EACH GRADE LEVEL ALONG WITH A GENERAL BIBLIOGRAPHY FOR EACH SUBJECT AREA. THE BULK OF THE MATERIAL PRESENTED IS IN THE FORM OF SHORT SUGGESTIONS FOR SPECIFIC STUDENT ACTIVITIES WITHIN EACH SUBJECT AREA AND AT EACH GRADE LEVEL.
