Creatively Gifted Students in Vocational Education, 1977-78. Final Report.
Glassboro State Coll., NJ. Dept. of Industrial Education and Technology.
This project was undertaken to develop programs for gifted/talented students in vocational education. The primary considerations were to investigate methods to identify highly creative students and to develop a curriculum model to nurture creativity. A seminar on creativity was held at Glassboro State College for the purpose of assisting in the development of gifted/talented programs in New Jersey. The seminar participants were divided into four task force sessions. Each task force was asked to respond to several questions, materials, and items. At the end of the day, a general session was held and a spokesperson for each group reported their deliberations. Specific recommendations for gifted programs resulted from these exchanges, and a guide to assist schools in beginning a program was developed. The guide included a number of details concerning a rationale, guiding principles, considerations unique to vocational school, underachievers, parent groups, creativity assessment instruments, problem solving, a format for developing curriculum materials and a number of problems for gifted students. (The complete guide is included in this document along with a program proposal for teaching gifted/talented students in vocational education; the proposal includes course rationale, objectives, and topical outline.)
