Drum, Jean, Ed.
Communicator, v23 n5 Nov 1993
This theme issue on gifted high school students presents several feature articles, a California legislative update, and an editorial. In "Summer Seminar '93--California in the 21st Century," Janis Van Dreal describes a 2-week residential program in which gifted high school students examined California's future. "Visiting a Gifted Program in Russia" (Sandra Kaplan and others) describes the similarities and differences between the perceptions of gifted American and Russian students toward curriculum differentiation. In "Supporting Talent Development Is Only Half of the Answer: A Reexamination of Issues Raised in the September 'Communicator'," Barbara Clark refutes John Feldhusen's approach and argues that educators cannot abandon the unique needs of gifted and talented children."Learning Differences: A Primer for Parents" (Madeleine D. Brandli and Kathleen Pommer) discusses prevention, identification, accommodations, and advocacy for gifted students with learning disabilities. Other articles include: "GATE Points the Way in the Reform Movement: CAG's High School Demonstration Sites" (Ron Fontaine); "The Seminar Program in the San Diego City Schools" (Betty Olson); "Accelerated College Entrance: The Benefits of ACE" (Terry A. Thomas); "Community and School Service--Another Challenge for Gifted/Talented Students" (Sharon Freitas); "The Orange County High School of the Arts" (Ralph Opacic); "AP Classes in a Rural High School? No Problem!" (Tim Guzik); and "A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words (Camcorders in the Classroom)" (Diana R. Alford). (Most papers contain references.) (JDD)
