Programs for Gifted and Talented Students in the State of Delaware, 1990-1991.
Dee, Margaret S.
This directory describes programs for gifted students in the public schools of Delaware. Separate sections provide listings for elementary programs, intermediate programs, high school programs, college programs, and summer programs. Descriptions of 55 district-level programs provide information such as: program administrator; contact persons; telephone number; address; grade levels served; schools served; areas of giftedness served; approximate percentage of the total student population served; student selection; contact time per week; and a brief description of program content. An overview notes that the highest concentration of services specifically for the gifted and talented is at the elementary level, with almost all schools using variations of the "pull-out" model. Most of the programs for students in the upper grades are school-based and half are offered in lieu of other classes. Four appendixes list members of the Statewide Council on Programs for the Gifted and Talented, state teachers of the gifted, program options for gifted and talented students, and requirements for certification as a teacher of the gifted and talented.
