Using Community Resources To Enrich Programs for Gifted and Talented Students.
Kreidler, William J.
This handbook was developed to help decision makers and others interested in gifted/talented education to address the challenge in two major ways: by designing new programs that successfully incorporate the principles and practices of community education and by improving existing programs using a community education approach. The seven programs highlighted in the sections of this publication incorporate at least one of the following community education practices: (1) parent advisory councils; (2) volunteer programs; (3) mentorship programs; (4) partnerships with business; (5) partnerships with cultural institutions; and (6) partnerships with colleges and universities. Each section of the publication includes an introduction explaining a particular community education approach and its relevance to gifted/talented programs. In each section, an exemplary program is highlighted, and other gifted/talented programs that use a similar approach are described briefly. Finally, a list of suggestions for implementing that particular approach is included. A list of resources completes the guide. (KC)
