EDUCATING THE HIGHLY ABLE, A POLICY STATEMENT.
FLICKINGER, GENEVA E.; AND OTHERS
THE DOCUMENT CONSTITUTES A POLICY STATEMENT FOR USE IN MARYLAND SCHOOLS. HIGH ABILITY IS REGARDED AS INCLUSIVE AND IS MANIFESTED BY HIGH INTELLIGENCE, AND/OR CREATIVITY, LEADERSHIP, AND SKILLED PERFORMANCE IN MOTOR AREAS. TEACHERS AND COUNSELORS ARE ASSIGNED A KEY ROLE IN IDENTIFYING THE HIGHLY ABLE. STANDARDIZED TESTS ARE ACKNOWLEDGED AS THE MOST EFFICIENT SINGLE INSTRUMENT FOR IDENTIFICATION, ALTHOUGH CAUTIONS ARE ENUMERATED FOR THEIR USE. SUGGESTIONS FOR PLANNING LEARNING EXPERIENCES TO FOSTER SELF EXPRESSION, EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION, THE USE OF SPECIAL ABILITIES, BREADTH AND DEPTH OF THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE, SELF DIRECTION, AND DESIRABLE SELF CONCEPTS ARE PRESENTED. THE ROLES OF THE TEACHER, PRINCIPAL, AND SOME VIEWS ON ADMINISTRATIVE ARRANGEMENTS ARE DESCRIBED. THE LIBRARY IS PAID SPECIAL ATTENTION AS AN IMPORTANT CENTER OF LEARNING. A STATEMENT OF GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR THE SCHOOL AND THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION IS GIVEN. THE GUIDELINES FOR ACTION INCLUDE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT THE SCHOOL SYSTEMS APPOINT PROGRAM COORDINATORS, AND THAT STEERING COMMITTEES PROMOTE EDUCATION PLANNING FOR THE HIGHLY ABLE.
