Baldwin, Alexinia Young
Gifted Child Quarterly, v38 n2 p80-84 1994
The Javits 7+ Gifted and Talented Program (Community School District 18, Brooklyn, New York) was designed to provide an opportunity for socioeconomically disadvantaged children to receive intensive school-based activities that would prepare them for gifted education programs. Teachers assessed students using Howard Gardner's concept of multiple intelligences and provided instruction for them using a thematic approach. (Author/JDD)
