Identification of and Curriculum Methodologies for Potentially Gifted Black Children.
Patterson, Patricia; Starcher, Sherolyn
The STRIVE Program, an approach to identifying and serving culturally diverse (Black and Hispanic) gifted students, is described. The STRIVE model consists of six modules: gifted programing; receptive and expressive language training; counseling (individual and group); relevant curriculum providing transitory skills; a parent advisory board; and teacher inservice. Teacher workshops are central to the project's success and are designed to increase the teacher's self image as well as to provide specific teaching and curriculum information. Original project students were identified through the California Achievement Test, the Structure of the Intellect Learning Abilities Test, the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking, the System of Multicultural Pluralistic Assessment, and the Piers-Harris Self Concept Inventory.
