Alberta Learning, Edmonton. Direction de l'education francaise.
This guide is intended to help schools and classroom teachers in Alberta provide successful school experiences for gifted and talented students. Section 1 focuses on program administration, including Alberta legislation, policy, and regulations; district administration of programs; and school administration of programs. Section 2 identifies an emerging paradigm which views giftedness as having multiple forms and as being diagnostic, developmental and based more on performance than test results. Also considered are concepts of giftedness as defined by Sidney Marland, Joseph Renzulli, Howard Gardner, Robert Sternberg, Donald Treffinger, Francoys Gagne, Julian Stanley, John Feldhusen, and George Betts. Section 3 focuses on identification with emphasis on inclusive identification processes. Section 4 considers characteristics of creatively gifted students in the visual and performing arts and offers classroom strategies for developing these talents. Section 5 specifically discusses strategies for designing and implementing instruction, including curriculum modification and instructional strategies. Section 6 discusses post-modern theory, its impact on current educational practice, and implications for developing curricula for gifted and talented students. Forty-eight sample forms are appended. Also attached are suggested teaching resources, publishers' addresses, an annotated test inventory, and a listing of support networks. Material is presented in French. (Contains 12 references.) (CR)
