Teaching the Gifted and Talented in the Elementary Classroom.
Heimberger, Mary J.
Part of the "Educating Gifted and Talented Students" series, the booklet presents activities specifically for gifted and talented children who are in a self contained classroom situation in kindergarten through sixth grade. Activities are explained to emphasize skills relating to identified characteristics of gifted and talented students--general and specific intellectual abilities, creative/productive thinking ability, psychomotor ability, leadership ability, and visual and performing arts abilities. Four sections encompass the major content areas included in most elementary school programs: reading and language arts, social studies, math, and science. A fifth section suggests general activities that can be applied to any content area. Each major section concludes with a sample integrating lesson that presents activities and skills relating to that content area in a unified and organized way. Within each content area section, activities are sequenced to include those appropriate for primary and intermediate levels, as well as activities that can be adjusted to meet the needs of all elementary levels.
