THE SUPERIOR AND GIFTED STUDENT PROJECT AT CULLOWHEE. A FOLLOW-UP STUDY.
BIXLER, HAROLD H.; COWAN, ANNE
EARLY RESULTS IN A LONGITUDINAL STUDY ON GIFTED STUDENTS ARE REPORTED. PROGRAMS WERE STUDIED THROUGH QUESTIONNAIRES AND BY PERSONAL VISITS TO PARENTS AND SCHOOLS. STUDENT PROGRAMS AS WELL AS TEACHER-TRAINING PROGRAMS WERE CONSIDERED. COMPILATION OF EXPERIENCES IN SPECIAL CLASSES AT WESTERN CAROLINA COLLEGE HAVE SHOWN THAT ALL THE CHILDREN INVOLVED HAVE BEEN INFLUENCED BY THE PROGRAM, THOUGH WORK MUST BE DONE IN THE LOCAL SCHOOLS TO HELP MEET THE NEEDS OF GIFTED CHILDREN. THE ADMINISTRATOR PUTS PROGRAMS INTO ACTION AND SHOULD WORK CLOSELY WITH THE TEACHER. THE TEACHER'S INFLUENCE SHOULD MOTIVATE AND STIMULATE HER PUPIL. STUDENTS ATTENDING COLLEGE CLASSES WHILE IN HIGH SCHOOL ACQUIRED GOOD STUDY HABITS AND SKILLS AND WERE PROVIDED WITH FINE GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING SERVICES. AGAIN MORE WORK IS NEEDED ON THE LOCAL LEVEL WHERE SPECIAL PROGRAMS ARE NOT MADE AVAILABLE BY COLLEGES. A SPECIAL TEACHER-TRAINING PROGRAM WAS INTIATED BY WESTERN CAROLINA COLLEGE. A TEACHER WORKSHOP AND A LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE WERE DIRECT RESULTS OF THIS EFFORT. SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVING TEACHER-TRAINING PROGRAMS ARE INCLUDED.
