McCallister, Corliss; And Others
A model summer program for developmentally advanced preschoolers is described, including identification procedures, staffing, and curriculum. An open classroom approach was utilized with art, music, dance, and drama activities to encourage creative growth; reading, math, and science taught in an exploratory way for those children ready for acceleration; an individualized motor development program; and parent education. Activities were designed to emphasize natural consequences, responsibility, positive self-concept, self-discipline, problem solving, and making choices. The program features cooperative efforts of the community and of the local state university, and informal evaluation results are cited. (CL)
