Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.
This guide to education for gifted students in Arizona begins with a rationale for providing special services for high potential students. It then discusses the gifted student, screening and identification, the teacher, programs and services, financial assistance, resources, and parent involvement. In each of these topic areas, the guide outlines requirements of state law, definitions of terminology, and references for further information. The guide specifically covers the definition of "gifted," the screening process, teacher criteria for obtaining provisional and regular gifted endorsement, organizational models and program options used to provide instructional services to gifted students, curriculum areas in which instructional services are provided, additional curriculum services, the need for school districts to submit a scope and sequence for gifted pupils in order to receive state aid, the process for applying for gifted education funds and carrying over funds, parents' rights, a list of directors of regional centers for gifted education and of professors involved in gifted education at Arizona's four major universities, and a list of newsletters and journals on gifted education. Appendixes offer a list of state-approved tests and their publishers, a list of skill requirements for teachers of the gifted, and a sample application for funding. (JDD)
