Parke, Beverly N.
This digest, in question and answer format, summarizes what is known about effective ways to provide fully educational services for gifted students in the regular classroom. The following questions are addressed: What are the steps to full service? (educators need to plan environments in which all students can fully develop their abilities and interests); What are the characteristics of students who are gifted and talented? (such students differ in the pace of learning, depth of understanding, and interests); What is the role of the regular classroom teacher? (teachers should be facilitators with skills in both subject areas and learning management); What program options are needed to meet the needs of these students? (a multiple programming approach is needed); What instructional provisions must be made? (student characteristics should guide development of instructional accommodations). A 14-item list of references and suggestions for further reading are included. (DB)
