Educating Gifted Pupils in the Regular Classroom. Training Manual.
Aldrich, Phyllis; And Others
Intended as a guide for teacher trainers, the manual is designed to help regular classroom teachers better understand and serve gifted and talented students. Section I offers an introduction to gifted education with an outline of history and research, and workshop activities covering issues regarding attitudes toward the gifted, teacher competency, and special instructions and special environments. A second section focuses on characteristics, identification procedures, and needs of the gifted in both academics and arts. Assessment, particularly informal techniques, is the topic of Section III. Section IV contains activities and instructional packets on applying 26 models and teaching strategies including Bloom's Taxonomy, the Enrichment Triad, the independent study technique, divergent/convergent thinking, Guilford's model, and the inquiry method. Section V considers program and management options, while Section VI offers checklists and forms for evaluating commercial materials. Parent involvement is covered in Section VII in terms of understanding parent attitudes and working with parents. A final section lists additional resources. (Resources lists are also provided at the end of the individual sections.) Information sheets on activities, contained throughout the manual, include information on activity objectives, time required, materials needed, equipment, and directions. (SW)
