Project IMPACT: A Case Study in Gifted Education.
Project IMPACT, a joint effort by public and private schools in Grand Forks (ND) to provide services to gifted elementary students, is described. Four project objectives are identified: to combine educational resources of public and private schools; to provide workshops and resources for teachers; to identify teachers suitable for teaching minicourses to gifted children; and to identify gifted children and provide a set of unique learning experiences. Fifty children were identified for the pilot project. Community involvement is recounted, and project costs are reviewed. Results of four evaluation instruments (the Arlin-Hills Student Attitude Inventory, the Wide Range Achievement Test, the Williams Exercise, and the Slosson Intelligence Test) are briefly noted. (CL)
