Teaching Gifted Children Art in Grades One Through Three.
Luca, Mark C.; Allen, Bonnie
The handbook for teaching gifted children art in grades 1-3 provides guidelines for curriculum development and teaching suggestions. Among topics considered in an overview of the art program are past and present art, the use of environmental design, pupil involvement in art, and identification and selection of gifted children. The art curriculum for the gifted is discussed with regard to program aims, emphasis, and content as well as area skills in art (such as sensory awareness and manual control) and sequential curriculum planning. Presented in chart form are suggested teaching methods for children from preschool through fourth grade. Examined are organizational considerations such as pupil grouping, scheduling, acceleration, instructional aids, the interrelationship of art with other subjects, and continuity and articulation in the art program. Attention is given to the creative process and intellectual development, creativity and guidance and the evaluation process, and new horizons in art education. (LH)
