Selected Progressive Competencies for Education of the Gifted.
Daniels, Roberta R.; And Others
Progressive competencies were identified for gifted students in grades kindergarten through 12 as a result of a survey of over 600 administrators, classroom teachers, and teachers of the gifted. Competencies were identified for four levels of development in the following six specific skill areas: creativity, affective development, academic management, research, critical thinking, and the psychomotor domain. A section on each skill area begins with a review of the literature, continues with a listing of the competencies for subskills, and ends with a bibligrraphy. Under "Creativity," competencies are listed for writing, speech and drama, art, divergent thinking skills, and creative problem-solving. Competencies identified for "Affective Development" include the subareas of self-image, group dynamics, leadership, and career exploitation. The section on "Academic Management" includes competencies for critical reading, nonverbal communication, verbal communication, listening, test awareness and time management. Included in the "Research" section are competencies for the election and planning process, information retrieval, recording and analyzing information, and the presentation of research. Competencies for the following subskills are included in the section on "Critical Thinking": analogy, deductive reasoning, propaganda and persuasive techniques, decision making, inductive reasoning--figural and numberic, inductive reasoning--verbal and symbolic, and causal relationships The final section, "Psychomotor Domain," contains examples from the Guilford and Harrow taxonomies.
