Gifted Child Development and Guidance Study.
Virginia Beach City Public Schools, VA.
The Gifted Child Development and Guidance Program of Virginia Beach City (Virginia) Public Schools was developed to interest gifted college-bound students in a vocational class in child development and guidance that might lead to further career interest in child-related professions. This report briefly describes program promotion; student selection; curriculum development; and program activities such as mentorships, field trips, and experience with preschool children. The program covered theories and philosophies of child development, careers relating to early childhood, genetic and environmental effects on the developing fetus, exceptional children, guidance techniques, and safety techniques. Results of a survey of students and parents indicated overwhelmingly positive attitudes toward the program. The bulk of the report is composed of program evaluation forms and tables of survey results. (JDD)
