Human Individual Potentialities: An Innovative Program for the Talented and Gifted.
Wurster, Stanley R.; Ball, Klonda M.
Presented are the results of a 2-year project to develop and implement an instructional model for 200 identified talented and gifted students in grades K-8. Listed in an introductory section are project objectives (which include fostering improvement in creativity). Briefly described are such aspects of the program as student selection, project evaluation design (involving 32 K-4 level students participating in the pilot program and 29 control students), the pilot program curriculum (incorporating the areas of the affective, cognitive, and psychomotor domains), and tests used to evaluate program effectiveness. The seven project objectives are considered individually in terms of the pre- and posttest scores, project produced documents, conclusions, and recommendations. It is concluded that the project has been successful in planning and developing procedures and instruments for identifying gifted and talented students and that the program has proven to be effective in modifying or changing children's behavior in the areas of mathematics, reading recognition, reading comprehension, general information, vocabulary, general ability, and creativity.
