Metamorphosis: Challenging the Gifted Reader.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
Recognizing the importance and difficulty of meeting the needs of the gifted reader in the regular classroom, this resource guide is designed to give the classroom teacher activities to use with the gifted reader. After the introductory sections describing the purpose and philosophy of the guide and a short presentation on the levels of thinking taxonomy that is the basis for many of the guide's activities, the manual provides a progression of research skills that are integrated as research is learned. The second section includes a series of questions based on a taxonomy of thinking skills that can be used with individuals or groups for books on different reading levels. Lists of award-winning and classic books make up the next section, while the following section provides the regular classroom teacher with stimulating ideas to enrich learning experiences for gifted readers; however, the guide contends that these same activities could benefit the entire class. The research booklet of the final chapter stimulates students to use higher levels of questioning. A bibliography and a form for teacher evaluation of the guide are also provided. (JL)
