Black and Gifted.
Blackshear, Patsy Baker; And Others
The report, based on a conference presentation on the exceptional Black child, includes two papers on potentially gifted and talented Black students. The first, "The Identification and Assessment of Black Gifted/Talented Children in Washington, D.C. Public Schools," (P. Blackshear), traces the evolution of the identification effort over a three year period using the Baldwin Identification Matrix. The use of multiple criteria, the view of giftedness as a relative condition, and the inclusion of students who are borderline or potentially gifted are discussed. In the second paper, "Project PEP--Pushing Excellence in Pupils: Fostering the Enchantment of Black Students," (Y. Ewell, et al.), discusses problems in identifying these children and describes the PEP project's curriculum, goals and objectives, staffing, staff development, and parent-community relationship. The PEP project is explained to include one half day in a self contained class and the remainder in enrichment activities with their peers. Sample forms from the project are included. An annotated bibliography with 11 citations concludes the report. (Author)
