The Gifted: A Perishable Resource.
Bronson, Ron, Comp.
The booklet is designed to help parents understand how they can help in the development of their gifted children. Included are such topics as the characteristics of giftedness; the four "faces" of gifted adolescents (high achieving studious, social leader, creative intellectual, and rebel); the role of parents; a checklist for assessing the school's needs; and individualized educational plan facts for parents. Due process procedures - including the rights to notice, program placement conferences, a due process hearing, and appeal - are discussed. A section for teachers of gifted children provides chapters with the following titles: "Establishing Goals for You and Your Students", "All Gifted Children Don't Learn Alike", "Meaningful/Less Meaningful Learning for the Gifted", and "A Point to Ponder" (which examines the necessity of special program for the gifted). A list of suggested reading and bibliographies are provided. (PHR)
