Treasury of Ideas: A Guide for Primary Major Work Teachers
Harsh, Jean; And Others
The guide for teachers of primary grade gifted children provides lesson ideas for the individualization of instruction at three levels of maturity in the areas of literature, outlining, oral presentation, citizenship, and other subject areas. Stressed is the gradual development of individual study skills, Noted for literature are basic skills to be developed at each maturity level such as location of main idea (Level A), answering thought questions, making relevant comments, and discussion and evaluation. Outlined are procedures for group discussions in a literature club format. Described is the development of outlining skills through the three maturity levels. Sample worksheets are offered for children to practice outlining and note taking skills. Also outlined are formats for the preparation of daily talks and criteria for evaluation. Citizenship is taught through the use of class meetings with elected leaders. The final section offers a potpourri of brief ideas for social studies, mathematics, science, language arts, art, and music. Examples are planning an imaginary air trip (social studies), making up problems using a code system (mathematics), planning a spacecraft trip to a planet, keeping a school diary, making a design for wallpaper (art), and composing original dances (music).
