Vocational Education: An Opportunity for the Gifted and the Talented Students.
Milne, Bruce G.; Lindekugel, Karen J.
Developed particularly for vocational educators, guidance and counseling personnel, and directors of gifted education programs, this booklet (brochure) is intended to bring about a greater awareness of the occupational opportunities for gifted and talented students through vocational education. Initial discussion focuses on definition and need for synthesis of the following concepts: equal opportunity, guidance and counseling, special education, career education, gifted education, and vocational education. Some characteristics of gifted and talented students and their identification are discussed briefly. The remainder of the booklet is an overview of the possible vocational programs and potentially satisfying jobs for the gifted/talented. Final emphasis is on the importance of guidance and counseling for the gifted. Photographs illustrate the text. (JT)
