Nurturing Leadership Talent in Early Childhood.
Karnes, Merle B.; Strong, Paula Sabatino
This manual for teachers and parents offers suggestions for helping 3- to 5-year-old children increase their leadership effectiveness. It is part of a series of similar guides developed by the RAPYHT Project (Retrieval and Acceleration of Promising Young Handicapped and Talented) for developing talents of both handicapped and nonhandicapped children. The manual focuses on increasing task achievement abilities and maintaining or increasing the ability to work with and lead others. Common characteristics of children with leadership talent are listed. Several general methods which can be used by teachers to stimulate leadership talent are recommended. Leadership goals and related activities are suggested. An annotated list of related readings is included. (Author/RH)
