Handbook for Resource Teachers of Gifted Children.
Stovall, Betty J.; Tongue, Cornelia
Designed for resource teachers of gifted children, the resource guide explains the inquiry educational method and presents seven lesson plan designs. The inquiry learning process is said to encourage use of any communication style that relates to the individual and develops the following learning and thought processes: identification of study problems; collection and organization of problem information; statement of hypothesis and possible conclusions; research investigations to test hypothesis; communication of hypothesis, testing activities, and final product to others; and evaluation of total procedure. Each study unit is divided into five steps: concept to be investigated, procedure for development, communication or presentation of product done by students, evaluation, and materials and equipment. The units cover inquiry readiness activities, social studies, language arts, science, mathematics, fine arts, and related disciplines. (CB)
