The Education of Gifted and Talented Children in Quebec in the Short and Medium Term.
Shore, Bruce M.
The report presents a general plan for improving the education of gifted and talented students (preschool-secondary grades) in Quebec. Short term (2-4 years) and medium term (3-6 or 7 years) actions are recommended. An introductory section defines giftedness and emphasizes the need for special educational provisions for this group. The second part addresses curriculum organization according to the following major topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): preschool, elementary programs (career awareness, students' interests); secondary programs (continuity of programming); the arts; special schools; role of private schools; special populations among the gifted (girls and women, handicapped students); services among schools (cooperation in staffing); teaching materials; and organizational principles. In subsequent parts, institutional responsibilities are considered, including teacher and administrator training and inservice. Among special considerations in program implementation are costs, program evaluation, and sensitization. (CL)
