Cunnion, Maryellen; And Others
The second of three documents on Project PRISM, a program designed to help middle school classroom teachers provide for the needs of gifted and talented students without removing them from the mainstream, notes guidelines for parents. The following topics are addressed (sample subtopics in parentheses): characteristics of the gifted (common myths and facts, early signs of giftedness); ways in which parents can help (the influence of parental attitudes on the child's behavior, guidelines, what the gifted child needs from parents, ways to encourage productive and creative thinking, information on enrichment experiences, and ways to identify creativity); parent-school partnership (questions and answers on special classes, counseling, career awareness); and resources for parents.
