Teaching Gifted Children Science in Grades Seven Through Twelve.
Brandwein, Paul F.
One of a series of publications for teachers, consultants, and administrators, the guide offers recommendations for curriculum development and science instruction for gifted students in grades 7-12. Discussed in the introductory chapter is creation of a school environment that fosters skills of interdependence (Communication with other scientists) as well as independent inquiry. Chapter 2 deals with characteristics and identification of gifted secondary students, the teacher's role in stimulating scientific interest, differences between conventional and singular giftedness, and the functions of the lecture and investigative approaches. Among the topics explored in a chapter on curricular strategies are types of curricula (such as the learning activity package or LAP program), a conceptually based curriculum, and instruction in investigative arts. A final chapter focuses on independence training, designing and evaluating LAPs for the junior high curriculum, and a consortium module for senior high curricula. (LH)
