Critical Reading and Thinking Skills in Programs for the Gifted Child.
Keck, Marie M.
When 60 reading specialists were asked to evaluate the reading programs for the gifted in their schools, most of the 20 people who responded indicated that their school districts had programs for the gifted, but that these programs were just beginning. The respondents, most of whom taught remedial reading rather than reading for the gifted, indicated that the following factors were important in a reading program for the gifted: a large percentage of time must be spent developing critical reading and thinking skills, diversified materials should be presented to the students and higher cognitive questioning should be implemented, and the gifted child should be encouraged to express ideas without fear of being criticized.
