THE IDENTIFICATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF TALENT IN HETEROGENEOUSLY GROUPED STUDENTS IN A GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAM AT THE SECONDARY SCHOOL LEVEL.
ALBERTY, ELSIE J.; AND OTHERS
AN INVESTIGATION WAS MADE TO DEVELOP A CONCEPTUAL MODEL OF TALENT IN ADOLESCENCE AND TO IDENTIFY "INDICES OF TALENT" THAT MANIFEST THEMSELVES IN STUDENT BEHAVIOR TO PROVIDE FOR INDIVIDUAL TALENT IDENTIFICATION AND DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE HETEROGENEOULSY GROUPED SECONDARY SCHOOL CLASSROOM. THE DESIGN OF THE STUDY WAS OF A DEVELOPMENTAL NATURE. THE PROJECT CENTERED ON APPROXIMATELY 175 STUDENTS IN GRADES 7 THROUGH 12, ENROLLED IN A LABORATORY SCHOOL ON THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS. THERE WERE FOUR STEPS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PRELIMINARY TALENT MODEL, INCLUDING EXPLORATORY INTERVIEWS WITH UNIVERSITY FACULTY, INTERDISCIPLINARY DISCUSSION GROUP MEETINGS, RECORDS EXAMINATIONS OF SEVERAL UNUSUALLY TALENTED SUBJECTS, AND A SYNTHESIS OF ALL PERTINENT DATA AND RESEARCH MATERIALS. STEPS WERE THEN TAKEN TO VALIDATE THE PRELIMINARY MODEL. THE PROCEDURE REQUIRED SOLICITATION AND ANALYSIS OF PROFESSIONAL FACULTY OPINIONS, SOME ACTUAL CLASSROOM OBSERVATIONS, AND A COMPREHENSIVE SURVEY AND REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE. THE PROJECT STAFF THEN PRODUCED A REVISED MODEL OF TALENT AND A TALENT INDEX, BASED UPON A DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF "TALENTED BEHAVIOR" AS A FUNCTION OF THE OVERALL INDIVIDUAL PERSONALITY. A FOLLOW-UP PROGRAM WAS RECOMMENDED TO DEVELOP A CURRICULUM USING THE CONCEPTUAL INFORMATION DEFINED BY THE INITIAL STUDY. (JH)
