PROGRAM FOR INTELLECTUALLY GIFTED IN JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS.
Los Angeles City Schools, CA.
THE PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO ENHANCE THE STUDENT'S INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT, CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY, ECONOMIC COMPETENCE, CREATIVITY, SENSE OF VALUES, FACILITY IN HUMAN RELATIONS, AND HEALTH. THE GIFTED STUDENTS ARE GENERALLY APPROACHED IN THREE MAIN WAYS WITHIN THE EDUCATIONAL SETTING. IN ABILITY GROUPING, GIFTED STUDENTS ARE PLACED TOGETHER IN HONORS CLASSES OR IN ACADEMICALLY ENRICHED CLASSES IF THEY FAIL TO QUALIFY FOR HONORS CLASSES. WHEN SUFFICIENT NUMBERS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR SEPERATE CLASSES, THEY MAY BE CLUSTERED OR PLACED TOGETHER IN A REGULAR CLASS AND GIVEN SPECIAL PROJECTS OF HONOR QUALITY OR ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT. THE THIRD WAY IS TO ACCELERATE THE STUDENTS BY HAVING THEM SKIP A SEMESTER IN JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL AND/OR SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL. THEY MIGHT ALSO BE PLACED IN SPECIAL ACCELERATED PROGRAMS IN MATHEMATICS OR LANGUAGES. BRIEF DESCRIPTIONS ARE GIVEN FOR--THE SUMMER SCHOOL HONORS PROGRAM, THE CRITERIA FOR SELECTING HONORS STUDENTS, AND THE METHOD, MEANING, AND RECORDING OF GRADES. OTHER ASPECTS OF THE PROGRAM INCLUDE ADVANCED STANDING GRANTED BY CERTAIN UNIVERSITIES TO THOSE WHO HAVE COMPLETED HONORS COURSES, EMPHASIS ON THE IMPORTANCE OF HOMEWORK IN THE PROGRAM, AND INSERVICE TRAINING FOR TEACHERS.
