Choosing Academic Summer Programs.
Hellerman, Susan B., Ed.
Imagine...Opportunities and Resources for Academically Talented Youth, v1 n3 Jan-Feb 1994
This newsletter theme issue deals with summer program offerings for academically talented youth. It notes the benefits of summer programs and outlines factors to consider in choosing the most appropriate one. Several types of programs are then described, including talent search programs, young students programs, math programs, science programs, college credit programs, study abroad, and arts programs. Seven directories of summer opportunities are listed as sources of further information. An article on writing for publication is presented, focusing on finding a market for one's writing, and publishers that accept work by students are listed. Another article explores implications of the recent revisions to the Scholastic Aptitude Test (now the Scholastic Assessment Test). The regular feature, "College Review Series," presents a review of Johns Hopkins University, based on comments of 13 students enrolled there. The issue also contains creative works by youth, including an essay, a puzzle, and a poem. (JDD)
