Perspectives on Gifted and Talented Education: Arts and Humanities.
Kreuger, Mark L., Comp.; Newman, Elizabeth, Comp.
The handbook on education in the arts and humanities for gifted and talented students includes a state-by-state directory of resources (especially councils and committees) and 20 articles exploring aspects of arts and humanities education, financial support, the education of gifted students, and community resources. Eleven articles address such topics as art education, theatre in education, the creative uses of film in education, and aesthetic education. Financial support for arts and humanities programs is discussed in three articles on amendments to Title IV of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, federal monies, and state monies. The education of gifted youth is examined in three articles on what can be done for rural gifted children, the culturally different gifted child, and the education of handicapped gifted children. Another three articles focus on issues in the identification and utilization of community resources for programs for the gifted. (GW)
