Project Gifted.
Cranston School Dept., RI.
Covered in the short discussion of Project Gifted for Intermediate grade children are program description, instructional strategy, classification of question categories to cue various levels of thinking, traits common to intellectually gifted students, and procedure for selection of students participating in Project Gifted. Project Gifted is described to foster a learning environment that enables a child to become a critical thinker. The instructional strategy is said to employ Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives as a frame of reference. The classification of question categories includes knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Then follow brief statements about 17 traits common to intellectually gifted students. The procedure for selection of students is described to involve language arts, mathematics, and reading results on an achievement test battery, verbal test scores, administration of the Stanford Binet Individual Intelligence Test and the Wide Range Achievement Test, results of a teacher behavior rating scale, a selection committee, and informing appropriate parents that their children have been selected for the program.
