Challenging Gifted Students in the Catholic School.
Maker, C. June; And Others
The guidelines presented in this publication focus on the education of gifted students within Catholic schools. Initial sections address the challenge of teaching gifted sudents and note the variety of gifts and talents. Goals are presented for educating gifted students in terms of three areas: (1) school (organizational options, directional approaches, teacher qualifications); (2) classroom (teaching/learning approaches, classroom management); and (3) person and community. A chapter dealing with identification examines referral, screening, and the relationship of referral, screening, and identification to definitions. Considerations in evaluation include general issues as well as those related to student progress and placement. A final section lists approximately 50 resources (books and materials). (CL)
