Implementing Mini Programs for Middle School Gifted Students. Parts 1-4.
Described and evaluated are a series of mini programs for middle school gifted students developed through a cooperative effort by Broward Community College and the School Board of Broward County, Florida. A section on implementation of the project includes the goals and philosophy of the program, and a review of the literature on gifted programs throughout the country. Provided are pre and post tests, summaries of student reactions, and discussions by instructors of the seven mini programs in the areas of astronomy, library, learning resources, psychology, art, self-concept, and communications. Reviewed is the development of the Broward County Gifted Program and of national, state, and county programs. Reported are results of surveys of participating students' and their parents; attitudes toward the program, principals; interest in having their schools participate, and teachers' evaluations of workshops on the gifted. It is explained that the program was evaluated on the basis of pre and post test scores, student questionnaires, and parent questionnaires for 20 of the 40 students who participated in the pilot project; and that the project was found to be an effective vehicle for enhancing cognitive and affective characteristics of gifted students. Appended are forms and correspondence pertaining to such program aspects as evaluation, workshop presentations and field trips. (LS)
