Language Arts for the Gifted and Talented: Questions and Answers from Teachers of English.
Designed for school personnel, the booklet suggests programing modes by which language arts may be organized to provide special learning activities for the gifted and talented (G/T) secondary school student. Among topics discussed in a series of 12 questions and answers are: identification of gifted and talented students; teaching objectives for this group; special needs of the group; types of language arts courses best suited to the needs of G/T students (including homogeneous grouping, special elective courses, enrichment in regular classes, advanced placement, extracurricular activities, and multidisciplinary programs); desirable teacher characteristics; suggestions for fostering creativity; finance (including suggestions for money making activities); and 19 suggestions for language arts activities (such as developing a dictionary of words and meanings and pronounciations particular to the region). A list of 16 recommended readings is appended. (PHR)
