Project Gifted - A Cooperative Effort in Gifted Education.
Cranston School Dept., RI.
Project Gifted, an educational program for gifted intermediate grade children, is described as a tri-city, cooperative effort in the demonstration of diverse educational procedures for the gifted. General goals for the project are noted as identification of gifted children, development of differential experiences to improve the learning programs for gifted children, and development of innovative programs to act as models for other communities. The program is said to focus on training in creative and evaluative thinking. Regional cooperation is found to create new avenues by which the education of gifted students can be achieved. The project is evaluated by a project evaluator. Pretest and posttest in both cognitive and affective domains measure student academic achievement and personal development. Results of the evaluation are thought to indicate that the program is successful. (For related studies, see also EC 042 227, ED 042 229-30.) (CB)
