[Silver Hills Junior High School Talent Pool].

The paper describes the Silver Hills (Idaho) Junior High School Talent Pool, a program designed to advance thinking skills through enrichment activities. The Talent Pool concept was established as an alternate means of identifying students eligible for gifted/talented services and programs. Students participate in three levels of enrichment activities, with efforts culminating in an independent project under the direction of the classroom teacher or the gifted/talented facilitator. Program goals are specified and the needs on which the program was based are pointed out (including the fact that there were students needing enrichment activities who were unable to meet eligibility criteria for participation in the gifted/talented program as set forth by the State Department of Education). General activities of the program are briefly described, such as the implementation of enrichment mini-courses based on identified student interest. (CL)
