Gifted Education: A State Plan for New Jersey.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of General Academic Education.
This state plan identifies New Jersey Department of Education activities for assisting local school districts in designing educational programs to meet the needs of intellectually and academically gifted students. The plan begins with an identification of needs in the area of gifted education, focusing on the need for multiple measures for student identification, differentiated programs, staff training, and a sound evaluation design. Four department goals are then discussed, along with objectives and evaluation plans: (1) providing statewide leadership in gifted education, (2) providing assistance to districts through training and dissemination of materials, (3) assessing the current status of gifted education and providing information concerning relevant developments in the field, and (4) encouraging public support for and community awareness of gifted education. The document concludes with a timeline for plan implementation, a historical review of gifted education in New Jersey, and a bibliography. (JDD)
