Meeting Needs of Gifted: A Non-Structured Summer Program. 1962-1963 School Year.
Winston, Carl M.
A 6-week summer program provided 51 gifted 4th and 5th graders with nonstructured experience in problem solving in science and language arts and in satisfying of operant needs. Fifty one matched children served as controls. Divided into four groups, the children worked with four teachers acting primarily as resource consultants. Testing demonstrated no significant differences between subjects and controls in problem solving in either science or language arts; however, children in the program manifested a reduced total need operancy. Changes in problem solving ability and operant need level were related only in the area of language arts; selection factors were related to success only in so far as subjects from grade 4 or with lower arithmetic reasoning did better.
