Programs and Practices in Gifted Education: Projects Funded by the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act of 1988.
Berger, Sandra L., Ed.
This directory resulted from a 1991 survey of 46 programs funded under the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act of 1988. The projects are listed alphabetically by state, city, and name of project. Projects have been divided into two types: (1) those that provide direct services to children and (2) dissemination projects. Projects in each of these types are summarized in a matrix display listing state, grantee, name of program, type of district, age/grade, and target population characteristics. A discussion of the Javits Act covering purpose, eligibility, types of projects funded, and source of further information is also provided. Individual project descriptions comprise most of the document and contain sections providing (1) general information, (2) program description, (3) program implementation, and (4) program evaluation. Among information provided for most projects is the following: project director, address, funding period, telephone, goals of program, program description, type of district, target population, selection criteria, identification procedures, number of children served, number of people involved in program implementation, type of preservice or inservice training, key conditions for replicating the program, cost of replicating the program, availability of technical assistance, most effective features of program, most surprising or challenging features of program, planned followup activities, and evaluation plan. A final section lists project directors, locations, and telephone numbers. (DB)
