A Teacher's Guide for Project STEP: Strategies for Targeting Early Potential.
Brooks, Patricia R.
The manual describes implementation of Project STEP (Strategies for Targeting Early Potential), designed to identify potentially gifted minority children in kindergarten and grade 1. The objective is an enriched educational program with which to identify students whose language, cultural, or economic differences may limit the validity of traditional gifted identification measures. Five parameters which may be exhibited by the potentially gifted pupil are examined: learning, motivation, leadership, creativity, and adaptability. Methods of documenting observations are described, including the annotated record and the SOAP Note (Situation, Observation, Assessment Plan). A final section covers ways in which Project STEP materials (task cards, manipulatives, and checklists) may be incorporated into the curriculum. Sample checklists and recording forms are appended.
