Intended as a guide for initial program implementation, the document presents an overview on programing for gifted and talented students. Chapter 1 reviews underlying philosophy and the rationale for program development. Goals and objectives are stated along with a summary of teaching techniques and approaches for elementary and secondary students. Program organization and scheduling are addressed in terms of team teaching arrangements. The chapter on teacher role presents reference materials regarding teaching styles, significant behaviors for teachers of the gifted, and a checklist for teachers' self evaluation. The identification process is reviewed, and reference materials cover teacher, parent, peer, and self nominations of students to the program. Curriculum criteria are noted and questioning techniques reviewed in the chapter on curriculum--half of the document--which also includes sample units in cultural arts, language, mathematics, science, and social studies. Two final chapters address matters of program evaluation (sample forms included), and finance. (CL)
