A Model Program for Middle School Gifted and Talented Students.
King, George L.
A model program was developed and implemented for a Middle School population of 129 gifted and talented students in a suburban Philadelphia School System. Administrators, parents, students, regular, and special teachers were involved. The model included a tutorial program for gifted underachievers, a special counseling program for gifted students experiencing disciplinary problems, and specially designed minicourses developed to meet the needs and interests of Middle School gifted students. A program of teacher training in giftedness and education of the gifted was conducted. Avenues of communication were established between gifted program teachers, parents, students, and regular program teachers; and an evaluation was undertaken at two stages of program development. The academic aspects of the model were implemented in a second district secondary school the following year. (Appendixes include gifted program student selection standards, teacher inservice training information, gifted students' behavioral system forms, gifted students' tutorial program information, minicourse descriptions, communication examples, a sample individual educational program, field trip information, and all program evaluation questionnaires.)
