Enrichment Programs for Intellectually Gifted Pupils.
Hill, Mary Broderick
This report of the enrichment phase of California Project Talent is designed to provide guidelines for teachers in other schools. Part 1 contains five chapters on the planning phases of the enrichment program which was operated at the demonstration center of the Los Angeles Unified School District from 1963-1966. Included are rationale for enriched curriculum for the gifted; identification of factors to be considered in structuring or revising curriculums; outlines for criteria for objectives with specific cognitive, affective, and conative behaviors noted; description of learning activities and curriculum organization; and lists of resources in personnel and materials. The five chapters in part 2 report the continuing inservice teacher training program established at the demonstration center. Included are outlines of curriculum provisions to promote the development of creative expression, critical appreciation and scientific attitudes with formats for lesson plans and study units. Part 3, which deals with the implementation of the program in elementary schools, contains description of source materials for lesson plans and course outlines, the content of which parallels the teacher materials (presented in part 2) in language arts, fine arts, and science. Part 4 on program evaluation includes check lists for use in evaluating pupils' progress and for teacher self-appraisal. "Selected References" for each chapter cite books, articles, audiovisual aids, and other supplementary materials. (JS)
