Teaching Social Studies to the Gifted and Talented.
Barth, James L.; Shermis, S. Samuel
Designed to supplement Indiana's curriculum guidelines for social studies instruction of gifted students, the manual provides introductory information on gifted and talented students and presents activity suggestions for Grades K through 3, 4 through 6, 7 through 8, and 9 through 12. At each grade level, the themes, topics, attitudes, and skills suggested in the accompanying document are briefly reviewed. Then activities designed to develop the cognitive and emotional capabilities are described. Activity entries include information on time duration, materials, and activity sequences. A brief narrative addresses the value of the activities for gifted students. Sources of creative social studies material are noted. (CL)
