RECENT TRENDS IN THE EDUCATION OF THE GIFTED.
TANNENBAUM, ABRAHAM J.
RECENT TRENDS IN EDUCATION OF THE GIFTED ARE PRESENTED. PROVISIONS FOR GIFTED STUDENTS ARE TO CONTINUE AND EXPAND, HOWEVER EMPHASIS SHOULD BE SHIFTED FROM MERELY PROMOTING THE NEEDS OF THE GIFTED TO SOLIDIFYING THE GAINS ALREADY MADE IN THIS DIRECTION. ENRICHMENT BRINGS NEW DISCIPLINES INTO THE CURRICULUM, AND NEW COURSES ARE DEVELOPED IN SUCH AREAS AS ANTHROPOLOGY, MATHEMATICS, PSYCHOLOGY AND GEOPOLITICS. REGULAR COURSES OF STUDY ARE COMPRESSED, STIFFENED, AND TELESCOPED, OR GIVEN EARLIER THAN USUAL. MECHANIZED TEACHING AND EARLY INSTRUCTION IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE ARE BENEFICIAL TO THE GIFTED. TEACHING MACHINES TRANSMIT CERTAIN ROTE SKILLS TO CHILDREN MORE RAPIDLY AND EFFICIENTLY THAN CONVENTIONAL METHODS, AND LANGUAGE LABORATORIES OFFER AN AURAL-ORAL APPROACH SO THAT STUDENTS DEVELOP GREATER FACILITY. MANY GIFTED YOUTH PLAN TO ENTER FIELDS OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, WITH A LESSENING OF INTEREST IN THE HUMANITIES. THE SEARCH FOR TALENT IN RURAL DISTRICTS AND AMONG CULTURALLY DEPRIVED GROUPS HAS GROWN. EXAMPLES INCLUDE THE P.S. 43 PROJECT IN NEW YORK CITY, THE LEWIS COUNTY PROJECT, AND THE CATSKILL AREA PROJECT. RESEARCH ON THE NATURE AND DEVELOPMENT OF TALENT HAS INCREASED, WITH MORE SCHOOLS PLANNING PROJECTS IN THIS FIELD.
