Programming for Intellectually Advanced Preschool Children; A Program Development Guide. Preliminary Draft.
Roedell, Wendy C.; Robinson, Halbert B.
This document presents curriculum ideas and procedures developed by the Child Development Research Group at the University of Washington for a model preschool program designed for intellectually advanced children 2 to 5 years old. The program was designed to offer teacher- and child-structured learning situations that provided instruction in language arts, science, mathematics, social studies, art, music and drama. Activities that develop physical and social skills were also part of the program. Chapters cover the identification and screening process; the planning of a program for intellectually advanced children; planning for the learning of social and physical skills; and the curriculum goals, sample lesson plans, and references for the mathematics, science, language arts, social studies, and art curricula. Appendices include reports on creative dramatics and mathematics programs for intellectually advanced children; sample parent questionnaires; and sample final student evaluation forms. (SB)
