GATE-Way to Success: Hispanic Gifted Program. Identification Packet [and] Instructional Guide.
Orange Unified School District, CA.
The packet describes procedures for identifying Hispanic elementary students with high academic potential and presents an instructional guide for programing. Guidelines are presented for conducting a needs assessment on the extent of ethnic imbalance in current gifted programs, encouraging referrals from all staff, and describing the search of all students. Screening is then undertaken for students identified in the search process. Written documentation must then certify that the student is in the top two percent of academic potential, and placement follows such certification. Twenty-five lessons are presented for incorporation into the regular program; these may provide students with opportunities to display characteristics of gifted and talented children. A separate instructional guide for gifted Hispanic students in grades 4-6 contains instructional units which emphasize multicultural awareness and high thinking processes in the subjects of literature, social studies, and language arts. Units list information on goals, objectives, content concept, multicultural emphasis, activities, and resources/materials. (CL)
