ELEMENTARY EDUCATION AND THE ACADEMICALLY TALENTED PUPIL.
SANDERS, DAVID C.
PROGRAMS FOR ACADEMICALLY TALENTED CHILDREN SHOULD BE BUILT ON A SOUND PROGRAM FOR ALL CHILDREN. CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD PROGRAM ARE STATED SPECIFICALLY IN LINE WITH THE OVERALL GOAL. PROGRAMS NOW IN OPERATION ARE MENTIONED. SOME AREAS OF PARTICULAR VALUE TO THE ACADEMICALLY TALENTED ARE--PROBLEM SOLVING, CRITICAL THINKING, BASIC SKILLS, CREATIVITY, VALUE SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT AND INDEPENDENT WORK. DEPTH OF LEARNING, MOTIVATION, AND DEVELOPMENT OF TALENTS ARE ALSO DISCUSSED. IT IS AN ADMINISTRATIVE TASK TO MAKE THE IDEA OF A PROGRAM WORKABLE. FINANCING IS OF NO GREAT CONCERN. ORGANIZATION AND GROUPING ARE CONSIDERED WITHIN THE LIMITATIONS OF THE LOCAL SYSTEM. GUIDELINES ARE GIVEN TO AID IN THIS. MOST TEACHERS FOR ACADEMICALLY TALENTED CHILDREN ARE CHOSEN FROM THE STAFF. GOOD INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS ARE FOUNDED UPON PUBLIC UNDERSTANDING AND SUPPORT. EVALUATION OF THE PROGRAM IS ESSENTIAL AND SUGGESTED CRITERIA FOR EVALUATION ARE INCLUDED IN THE TEXT.
