The Itinerant Resource Teacher: A Manual for Programs with Gifted Children.
Stovall, Betty J.; Tongue, Cornelia
Prepared for the use of schools in North Carolina, the manual discusses the use of itinerant resource teachers in the educational program for gifted children. Although pertaining primarily to the gifted and talented program on the elementary and junior high levels, the manual could be adapted to the senior high program also. Discussion of the philosophy and objectives of the Itinerant Resource Teacher Program for Gifted Children indicates that the itinerant teacher acts as a resource person to the regular teacher as well as to the children, thus supplementing rather than supplanting the regular teacher. A section in question and answer format explains the concept of the itinerant resource teacher, and a description is given of ways to implement the program in a school setting. Several sample schedules are presented to illustrate how the program might be implemented in a school system. Also covered are additional professional responsibilities of the resource teacher and some factors to consider in the process of evaluating both the students' progress and the program. (KW)
