Gifted Students: Identification Techniques and Program Organization.
Doob, Heather Sidor
As a result of renewed interest in educational programs for gifted children, the U.S. government is providing funds and developing programs for the nation's 1.5 million gifted and talented students. Local level needs for planning or expanding programs include the proper identification of gifted and talented children and the establishment of effective programs. This publication provides an overview of identification procedures and types of programs found in the literature and in local school systems. The most common program types are listed as early admission, acceleration, enrichment, special classes and special schools, special summer programs, advanced placement, independent study, itinerant teachers, seminars, and community sponsors or tutors. Descriptions of eight methods of identifying gifted and talented students and of ten programs in use in a variety of school districts are outlined. (Author/DW)
