Research and Guidance Laboratory Practices: Identifying and Programming Gifted and Talented Students.
Pfleger, Lawrence R., Comp.
Presented are written materials developed through a research-through-service program to devise, test, and demonstrate procedures which schools can use to identify secondary level gifted and talented students in a variety of social and cultural settings; and, on the basis of the characteristics discovered during the identification process, to develop techniques and activities which are appropriate to meet these students educational and vocational needs. Materials are divided into four categories (sample inclusions are listed in parentheses): about the Research and Guidance Laboratory program (freshman orientation format and student activities); identification of gifted and talented students (observational techniques and hints on the selection of students); laboratory procedures for working with gifted and talented students (exercises in relationships, suggested personal topics for use by school counselors, example of student's reactions to university class visits, and examples of teacher comments about students); and followup procedures in working with gifted and talented students (50 suggestions for providing students with enrichment and acceleration, sample recommendations for parents--with samples of parent reactions, and an example of first year after high school education report). To show how procedures and forms might be used and what kinds of information they yield, examples of completed forms and responses have been included with the examples. (SBH)
