The Talent Development High School. Essential Components. Report No. 1.
LaPoint, Velma; And Others
The Talent Development Model for high schools was developed to fill a major current void in American education--the lack of a proven model of high school effectiveness. This report presents the essential components of the Talent Development High School, a model of changes in high school organization, curriculum, and instruction based on research on student motivation and teacher commitment. Part 1 of the report describes the components of the model, which emphasizes: (1) a college preparatory core curriculum based on high standards; and (2) a learning environment that incorporates four sources of student motivation--relevance of school work, a caring and supportive human environment, opportunities for academic success, and help with personal problems. Part 2, which comprises about 75% of the report, describes the research base from which the model was derived. (Contains 99 references.) (LMI)
