Assessment of Needs, Resources and Linkages for Creativity and Giftedness.
Participants of a colloquium series on creativity and giftedness held at Arizona University were surveyed about concerns and suggestions regarding needs, resources, and appropriate linkages for creativity and giftedness programs. Teachers, parents, administrators, school board members, students, and consultants raised concerns over minimal state funds, regulations specifying the criteria of two standard deviations above the mean, inflexible program design in the schools, inadequate teacher preparation and selection, problems in identification and screening, and the importance of community and home cooperation with the schools. Sample survey forms are included, along with the agenda from the final workshop in the series. (CL)
