Special Class Programs for Intellectually Gifted Pupils.
Robeck, Mildred C.
A project to develop instructional and evaluative procedures for special classes of intellectually gifted students in grades four, five, and six was developed as part of California Project Talent. Two demonstration programs were observed over a 3-year period; the two classes were all-day, full-week programs for children with an IQ of 130 or over. The following aspects of the classes are described: administrative procedures and organization, selection of students, curriculum development oriented to the learners, provisions for professional education of teaching personnel, and evaluation by informal and formal measures. Recommendations are made for each of the areas discussed. A reference list cites 126 items. (SP)
