Autonomous Learner Model for the Gifted and Talented.
Betts, George T.
The manual describes the Autonomous Learner Model for the Gifted and Talented (K-12), an approach to helping students become problem solvers through divergent and convergent thinking. Among basic principles of the model are emphases on self esteem, social skills, student interests, and broad-based content topics. Each of five dimensions of the model is analyzed: (1) orientation (understanding giftedness, group building activities, self-understanding, program opportunities and responsibilities); (2) individual development (learning skills, personal understanding, interpersonal skills, career involvement); (3) enrichment activities (explorations, investigations, cultural activities, service, adventure trips); (4) seminars; and (5) in-depth study. Sample worksheets and grading requirements are among items appended. (CL)
