ILLINOIS PLAN FOR PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT FOR GIFTED CHILDREN. INITIAL PLANS FOR 1963-65.
JACKSON, DAVID M.
THE ILLINOIS PLAN FOR PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT FOR GIFTED CHILDREN WAS COMPOSED OF FIVE PARTS. THE FIRST, REIMBURSEMENT FOR SERVICES AND MATERIALS, OFFERED ANY SCHOOL DISTRICT AN OPPORTUNITY TO SUBMIT A PLAN FOR IMPROVING ITS SERVICES TO GIFTED CHILDREN. PROPOSED PLANS SHOULD INVOLVE A DESCRIPTION OF WHO WAS TO BE SERVED, THE QUALIFICATIONS AND DUTIES OF THE SPECIAL PERSONNEL, AND A DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOKS AND MATERIALS NEEDED. REIMBURSEMENT WILL BE COMPUTED BY A FORMULA DESIGNED TO TAKE ACCOUNT OF THE NUMBER OF GIFTED PUPILS BEING SERVED AND THE WEALTH OF THE DISTRICT. THE SECOND PART, DEMONSTRATION CENTERS, SHOULD PROVIDE FOR ALL ILLINOIS EDUCATORS AND OTHER CITIZENS TO HAVE ACCESS TO DEMONSTRATIONS IN OPERATING SITUATIONS OF A NUMBER OF PARTICULAR APPROACHES TO THE EDUCATION OF GIFTED CHILDREN. THE DEMONSTRATION CENTERS SHOULD EMPHASIZE ACCELERATION OF GIFTED PUPILS, INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION, SPECIAL CLASSES, SPECIAL ATTENTION TO UNDERPRIVILEGED GROUPS, AND CURRICULUM IMPROVEMENT. EXPERIMENTAL PROJECTS, THE THIRD PART, SHOULD PROVIDE STATE ASSISTANCE FOR EXPERIMENTAL PROJECTS TO HELP SCHOOL DISTRICTS CARRY ON SIGNIFICANT EXPERIMENTATION TO ADVANCE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT PRACTICAL PROGRAMS FOR GIFTED CHILDREN. THESE PROJECTS SHOULD BE DERIVED FROM PREVIOUS RESEARCH, ILLUSTRATE NEW PROCEDURES, HAVE AN EVALUATION PHASE AND HAVE A REPORT OF THE RESULTS. FOURTH, FIELD CONSULTANTS AT THE STATE LEVEL, SHOULD PROVIDE KNOWLEDGEABLE HELP IN THE PLANNING AND OPERATION OF DEMONSTRATION CENTERS, EXPERIMENTAL PROJECTS AND TEACHER TRAINING ACTIVITIES. THE LAST PART, STATE SUPPORT FOR PROGRAMS TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF SPECIALLY TRAINED PERSONNEL, SHOULD PROVIDE CONSULTATIVE SERVICES, INCLUDING THE LEADERSHIP OF INSERVICE WORK WITH TEACHERS AND DIAGNOSTIC AND COUNSELING SERVICE. THE STATE SHOULD PROVIDE FOR A PROGRAM OF FELLOWSHIP FOR ABLE PERSONS, ONE OR MORE ACADEMIC YEAR INSTITUTES, AND SEVERAL SUMMER INSTITUTES.
