Australian Commonwealth Schools Commission, Canberra.
The document contains proceedings from a seminar on the education of gifted and talented children in Australia. The keynote address, "Expectations for Educating the Gifted and Talented" delivered by R. Strom, is divided into five main sections: school expectations (goal setting and motivation, scope of learning, mental health and stress); teacher expectations (attitudes and skills, curriculum design, parent-teacher conferences); peer expectations (cultural changes in learning, benefits of peer instruction, developing peer esteem); parent expectations (early environment, family communication, advice and guidance); and societal expectations (access to opportunity, range of talent, sources of identification). Individual reports cover six discussion groups on curriculum, research, support services, and teacher education. A general summary reviews discussion group recommendations, teacher evaluation, home-school relationships, collaborative teaching, and parent education. Also provided are teacher evaluation forms, a stress inventory, guidelines for parent-teacher relationships, a seminar timetable, and a list of participants. (SB)
