This document includes articles on programs for the gifted in urban and rural areas. Jean Blanning writes a personalized case-oriented record of an independent studies program offered in an urban high school (in New Haven, Connecticut) serving large numbers of minority children. This section gives testimony to the effectiveness of dedicated teachers working one-to-one or in intimate groups, and includes student work. The items on rural education outline special programs in education of rural gifted, modes of education, and techniques for dispersal of opportunity, and describe a successful rural cooperative. Martin J. Burnbaum discusses the special needs and educational problems of the rural gifted. Paul Plowman proposes various strategies for meeting the needs of rural gifted and talented youth. Gil Caudill examines the steps taken in implementing gifted programs in Kansas. A list of books available on the subject of gifted children is also provided. (Author/EB)
