Educating the Gifted in Minnesota Schools.
Villars, Gerald, Ed.
In order to provide teachers, administrators, guidance counselors, and parents with those procedures necessary to set up programs for the gifted, the following topics are considered: definitions and descriptions of the gifted, an identification procedure consisting of five stages, and a list of 19 traits common to the gifted. A discussion of programs for the gifted begins with an overview of nine characteristics important for an effective program, aspects of curriculum development, provisions for evaluation, and four types of programs which include ability grouping, acceleration, enrichment, and special classes. Nine school programs in different areas of the country are described. Appendixes include forms for an annual report of the number of gifted in Minnesota schools and a report form on the types of programs each school has initiated; 89 references are cited. (DS)
