Teaching the Gifted.
Ediger, Marlow
This document outlines principles of learning that should be followed by teachers of gifted students. Principles include: (1) students' need to experience challenge in the classroom; (2) students' need to attain as much as individual abilities permit; (3) curricular emphasis on students' personal interests; (4) meaningful experiences; (5) students' opportunities to assist teachers in determining objectives, learning and evaluation procedures; and (6) opportunities to work in committees with others of similar ability. Two psychologies of instruction are described for teaching gifted students: behaviorism with its precisely stated, measurable objectives developed prior to teaching, and humanism with possibilities for students to engage in choosing which objectives to attain and which learning opportunities to pursue.
