An Educational Program for Gifted and Talented Students in a Rural Setting.
Diezsi, Cynthia P.; Cummings, William B.
A rural district designed a unique program for gifted elementary students which allowed any teacher the opportunity to develop and teach a qualitatively different unit to students identified as gifted. The half-day once-a-week pull-out program encouraged teachers to be part of the selection process and employed a coordinator to monitor the program, supervise teachers, and act as a liaison with parents. The program promoted faculty ownership and featured such units as those on creative writing and caligraphy, computer programming, art in the community, comparative religions, and kitchen chemistry. The program expanded to high school weekend seminars and evening courses for college credits. (CL)
