Sputnik Plus Ten; Ohio's Program for the Gifted 1957-1967.
Gloss, Garvin G.; And Others
Briefed are the planning, the committee work, and the supportive legislation which followed the conception of Ohio's gifted program. The procedural methodology used by the Division of Special Education to encourage the initiation of programs and to disseminate information of research, monographic contributions, and demonstration results is discussed. Historical treatment is given the following subjects: statewide coordination of advanced placement; specific demonstration projects emphasizing acceleration, subject and general advanced placement, counseling, enrichment, identification, special classes, individual programing in heterogeneous grouping, work-study for underachievers, and the ungraded approach; surveys of literature, evaluations of projects and procedures, and studies of costs; descriptions of six controlled research studies; and conclusions regarding the Department of Education's role in identification, selection, programs, and supervision. An overview of current provisions includes methods of identification and selection, quantitative comparisons with programs in other areas of special education, demographical correlates, program costs, availability of child-study services, administrative and curricular provisions, extent of parental involvement, student and program evaluation, problems encountered, and conclusions and implications.
