Teaching the Gifted and Talented. Fastback 119.
Correll, Marsha M.
The book discusses the teaching of gifted and talented students. The rationale behind special education programs for such students is reviewed, and the population in question is described and defined. The chapter on identification examines such instruments as group intelligence and achievement tests, teacher nominations, and creativity tests, and covers culturally different and minority students. Among the educational approaches for the gifted and talented reviewed are enrichment programs, ability grouping, and acceleration. Also covered are the costs of programs for the gifted and talented, the role of parents and community resources, and teacher preparation. Two scales designed to assist in the identification of the gifted and talented are appended, along with a bibliography. (DLS)
