Getting Your School Ready for the Gifted.
Bartel, Elaine V.
The booklet is intended to help classroom teachers to provide appropriate education for gifted elementary students. A first section rebuts typical arguments against gifted programing (such as that identification procedures are too costly) and discusses the teacher's role in bringing schools and parents together. The second section considers the teacher's role in the classroom, reviews approaches to independent learning, and notes the importance of striking a cognitive-affective balance. Final thoughs in Section Three touch on setting priorities, evaluating gifted programs, and helping students toward self actualization. (CL)
