KOEHNLINE, WILLIAM ANGUS
THE OBJECTIVES OF HONORS OR ACCELERATED COURSES FOR THE GIFTED STUDENT ARE THE SAME AT ALL SCHOOL LEVELS--NAMELY, TO PREVENT WASTE OF TALENT, TO CAPITALIZE FULLY ON HUMAN AND ACADEMIC RESOURCES, AND TO ENCOURAGE EXCELLENCE TO THE LIMITS OF THE INDIVIDUAL AND THE INSTITUTION. THIS DISSERTATION SURVEYS THE LITERATURE AND HISTORY OF SUCH PROGRAMS AND DESCRIBES THE METHODS MOST COMMONLY USED IN TEACHING THE GIFTED CHILD, INCLUDING SUCH DEVICES AS ACCELERATION, EARLY ENTRANCE, ADVANCED PLACEMENT, INDEPENDENT STUDY, SEMINARS, CURRICULAR ENRICHMENT, ETC. IT ALSO OUTLINES VARIOUS JUNIOR COLLEGE PROGRAMS, PARTICULARLY THE ONE AT FLINT COMMUNITY JUNIOR COLLEGE. THE ENGLISH PROGRAMS OF THE LATTER, FOR BOTH THE "HONORS" AND THE "INTENSIVES" CLASSES, ARE DESCRIBED MINUTELY, ALONG WITH THE PROBLEMS, BOTH MINOR AND MAJOR, THAT HAVE ARISEN. THE PROBLEMS INCLUDE IDENTIFICATION AND RECRUITMENT OF SUITABLE STUDENTS, CHOICE OF COURSE CONTENT, EVALUATION, FACULTY SELECTION, AND OTHER LESSER MATTERS. THE LAST CHAPTER GIVES THE WRITER'S RECOMMENDED SOLUTIONS FOR THREE MAJOR AND FIVE COMPARATIVELY MINOR PROBLEMS. AN EXTENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY IS PROVIDED. THIS PH.D.
