THE GIFTED CHILD IN CONNECTICUT, A SURVEY OF PROGRAMS.
RENZULLI, JOSEPH S.; VASSAR, WILLIAM G.
TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT AND NATURE OF SPECIAL PROVISIONS FOR ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY GIFTED STUDENTS THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT, A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SENT TO EACH SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS IN NOVEMBER 1966. AREAS OF STUDY INCLUDED THE EXISTENCE OF PROGRAMS, IDENTIFICATION CRITERIA AND PROCEDURES, TEACHER SELECTION CRITERIA, AND INSERVICE TRAINING FOR TEACHERS AND OTHERS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PROGRAMS. CONCLUSIONS DRAWN FROM THE RESULTS INDICATE THAT (1) OF THE RESPONDING SCHOOL SYSTEMS, 42 PERCENT HAD SPECIAL PROGRAMS FOR THE GIFTED, (2) TOTAL PROGRAMING FOR ALL GIFTED IN ALL AREAS AT ALL LEVELS WAS INFREQUENT, (3) FOUR OR MORE CRITERIA WERE USED BY 86 PERCENT OF THE DISTRICTS FOR IDENTIFICATION, AND (4) INSERVICE EDUCATION NEEDS DEVELOPMENT. EIGHT QUESTIONS RAISED BY THE SURVEY AND IN NEED OF FURTHER STUDY ARE LISTED. (JP)
