The Whitman County Project for Academically Talented Students: An Evaluation. Final Grant Report.
Pringle, Robert G.; And Others
Sixty-three "gifted" 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students from 13 rural school districts in eastern Washington participated for 16 weeks in a special educational enrichment program. Four Teaching-Resource Centers were established throughout the county, and 15-17 students from adjacent districts met at each center during one day per week. One special teacher conducted all classes and moved from center to center. Drama, art, creative writing, social studies, mathematics, and film making were all the principle areas of study. At the project's conclusion, observations regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the project were obtained from parents, students, and regular classroom teachers. These observations are discussed in detail in the report, and suggestions for improving programs for rural "gifted" children are outlined by the special teacher. (Author)
