Marion, L. Marvin
The "mini-unit" focuses on the hobby of antiques and collectibles for gifted students. Among 10 objectives listed for the unit are to exhibit elaboration of ideas, use visual imagery, and learn social courtesies by working with older people in the community. Activities emphasize brainstorming, writing, conducting interviews, going on field trips, reading resource materials, and performing research. The 62 activities are said to be based on theories of F. Williams and B. Bloom. (CL)
