Developing a Schoolwide Enrichment Activity Program for Identified Gifted Students.
Perlini, Ernest L.
A needs assessment was conducted of 32 middle school gifted students. Analysis of a parent survey, teacher survey, and meetings with students revealed 10 primary need areas (including opportunities for advanced skills, independent thinking, expression of creativity and originality, and acceptance from grade level peers). Four enrichment activities in career awareness in computer science, environmental awareness in oceanology, communication awareness in critical observation and writing, and speed reading development through systematic instruction were developed and judged to provide experiences to meet the identified needs. Parent, student, and teacher evaluation indicated positive results from student participation. (Author/CL)
