Language Arts for the Secondary Gifted.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Bureau of Education for Exceptional Students.
Intended for teachers of high school honors English courses, this guide developed by the Escambia County School District (Florida) provides two differentiated curricula appropriate to the unique learning styles of the gifted language arts student. The ninth grade design features six units tied to the theme of individuality, while the tenth grade contains five units focused on the concept of survival. Both units emphasize five cognitive components: thinking skills, content, research skills, basic skills and product. These are cognitively developed through activities in three stages--introduction, practice, and extension. Synthesis activities are encouraged through suggested creative integration topics. Specific activities are prescribed at each developmental level in each skill area. The programs are each designed to cover a one-year time frame. Also included are lists of supplemental readings for each course. (ARH)
