Twin City Institute for Talented Youth. Annual Report.
Twin City Inst. for Talented Youth, St. Paul, Minn.
A summer program enrolled 579 talented students. Regular admit students had higher aptitude test scores and grade point averages; special admit students, who came from inner city schools, manifested creative and artistic abilities and high motivation. Courses were offered in the arts, the humanities, foreign language, language arts, math and science, and social and behavioral science. Students also participated in seminars and special events. Associate teachers from the city schools worked with master teachers. Special admit students did relatively well; students as a whole were positive about the program; associate teachers were favorable, but wanted more contact with students and planning time with master teachers. Administrative evaluation suggested orientation for students regarding norms, questioned locating the program on a college campus, and approved the modified admission policy and the problem emphasis in the curriculum.
