Kaplan, Sandra N.
The handbook, developed by the National Summer Leadership Training Institute (1972 and 1973) on the Education of the Gifted and Talented, provides background information for program development, worksheets for applying information, and models which illustrate successful program ideas. Topics considered in the section on initiating a program are answering program planning questions, replying to criticisms of programs for the gifted, planning, differing roles and responsibilities, and philosophic considerations. Examined in the section on program prototypes are elements and kinds of prototypes, intra-classroom prototypes, extra-classroom prototypes, special types of giftedness and talent, and guidelines for developing a protoyype. Discussed are aspects of curriculum design: principles process and content elements, methods for differentiating curricular activities for the gifted and talented, guidelines for developing a curriculum, types of curricula, and format and packaging of curriculum. Guidelines for developing a written plan are provided. Program preparation is seen to involve monitoring program progress and planning for inservice education. Also included are 54 bibliographic references and 10 references to written plans of various California school districts. (DB)
