Gifted Children: Nurturing a Resource 1978-1982. A Description and Assessment of a Foundation Program in Youth Education. A Youth Education Report.
Healey, Judith K.; And Others
The booklet reports on gifted education projects funded over a 5-year period by the Northwest Area Foundation. In part one of the document, the projects are listed according to year of funding, with information on the following aspects: amount of funding, title of project, address and telephone number, and a brief description. Projects initially focused on curriculum development, implementation of methods of identification, and teacher and parent education; however, funding emphasis switched in later years to projects that encouraged involvement of business and industry, and the development of parent advocacy networks. Part two of the booklet, an assessment of program impact, evaluates separate state programs for Washington, Oregon, Minnesota, and Iowa, as well as the overall program and the Foundation's experimental process in using regional units as local agents.
