The Honors Program in English at Central High School, St. Joseph, Missouri.
Frazier, Virginia F.
High school honors programs can help meet the needs of students who have an extra measure of intellectual ability and the desire to learn in depth, become independent, and pursue special interests. This paper points out how little is done nationwide to help gifted students and urges schools to institute honors programs. It then describes an English honors program at a Missouri high school, explains the philosophy on which the program is based, and discusses the identification of potential students for honors programs, the scheduling of students into honors classes, a recommended philosophy for teachers of English honors classes, and qualities of the superior student.
