Teaching Gifted Students Social Sciences in Grades Ten through Twelve.
Popham, Donald F.
The monograph is designed to assist secondary school teachers in grades ten through twelve who teach social sciences to gifted students. The introduction encompasses such topics as the role of leadership, the variability of instruction, and problems in social science instruction. The identification of the gifted student in social sciences and the successful teacher of the field is considered. The importance of the development of an inquiry-conceptual process of reflective reasoning in order to equip the gifted student for social understanding is stressed. Program themes and structure for each of the grade levels are discussed and subject matter skills and teaching strategies are looked at. The monograph concludes with a summation of the projected design of the new social science framework for California as taken from the findings of the California Statewide Social Sciences Study Committee. A complementary document (EC 032 579) deals with the same topic at the elementary school level (grades 4-6). (CD)
