How Gifted Children Feel About Educable Children in an Educational Setting.
Bonds, Charles W.; Adams, John
A questionnaire was administered to 50 gifted children (9 to 12 years old) to determine how students feel about the mildly retarded in a classroom setting. Based on the responses to the 10 questions, there seemed to be a very high belief that mildly retarded children will be socially accepted by their peers. The gifted group did not view the mildly retarded as hampering their academic achievement. Also, the gifted group believed that the mildly retarded would learn more if placed in class with regular students. Gifted Ss were willing to use their spare time to tutor the retarded as well as share teacher time for individual instruction for the retarded. (SB)
