High School Programming.
Update on Gifted Education, v2 n1 Spr 1992
This theme issue covers "High School Programming" and approaches to meeting the needs of gifted high school students in Texas. The first article is "Thematic Interdisciplinary Curricula for Secondary Gifted Students in English and Social Studies" (Joel E. McIntosh and April W. Meacham). This approach is contrasted with the traditional curriculum model and the integrated curriculum model and implementation guidelines are offered. The second article is "Coming to America: The Ellis Island Experience" (Pam Martin). This describes a simulation experience and lists steps in designing a simulation. Next, Coila Morrow and Judy Duncan ("An Interdisciplinary Secondary Program for Gifted/Talented Students in a Small District") describe their use of a thematic curriculum model for 40 high school students. The next article, by an 11th grade student, Jeb Williamson, is titled "Awakening the Potential in Gifted Students." It offers a student viewpoint of one gifted and talented program and stresses the value of student involvement in all aspects of curriculum development. Next, Sandra R. Gifford offers guidelines for "Organizing Dual Enrollment Options for Gifted Education." The final article, by Evelyn Levsky Hiatt and Jeanette Covington, is "Q & A High School Programming." It addresses such areas as grading, differences between honors and gifted classes, high school seminar programs, mentors, and furloughs from the program. (References accompany most of the articles.)
