GUIDE FOR PLANNED ACCELERATION FOR GIFTED SECOND GRADERS. WORKING DRAFT.
BEEGLE, HARRIET; PRESS, BILLIE
A SUMMER PROGRAM FOR GIFTED SECOND GRADERS IS PRESENTED. THE REQUIREMENTS FOR A CHILD'S PARTICIPATION INCLUDE AN IQ OF 130 OR BETTER, STRONG ACADEMIC TALENT, HIGH MOTIVATION, PARENTS' APPROVAL AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE STAFF. THE CURRICULUM CONSISTS OF READING (E.G. TEXTS, SUPPLEMENTARY READING, INDIVIDUALIZED READING, SOCIAL STUDIES MATERIAL), HANDWRITING, SPELLING, AND ARITHMETIC. THE ARGUMENT FAVORING ACCELERATION OF STUDENTS IS DRAWN FROM TERMAN'S AND OTHERS' STUDIES WHICH CLAIM THAT THOSE GRADUATING FROM HIGH SCHOOL WERE WELL ADJUSTED SOCIALLY AND WERE FAR MORE SUCCESSFUL IN LATER EDUCATION AND CAREERS THAN WERE THEIR NONACCELERATED PEERS OF SIMILAR INTELLIGENCE AND BACKGROUND.
