Gifted and Talented in the Visual Arts.
Hatfield, Thomas A., Comp.; Elam, Anne H., Comp.
Intended for practitioners involved in art and gifted education, the booklet presents practical information on programing for students gifted in the visual arts. A review of the research traces the development of the field from the 1920's to the present. California programing is cited as a foundation to curriculum development by outlining skills and content in four major program components: aesthetic perception, creative expression, visual arts heritage, and aesthetic valuing. Sample program models cited include acceleration, multi-age grouping, resource/interest centers, mentorships, and "happenings." Examples of correspondence to parents, students, school personnel, and the general public are followed by four chapters on the following facets of identification: student characteristics; sample applications, procedures, and instruments; sample nomination forms; and sample final selection/screening forms. Program, student, and instructional process evaluation considerations are covered in the final chapter. (CL)
