This directory resulted from a 1991 survey of 46 programs funded under the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act of 1988. The projects are listed alphabetically by state, city, and name of project. Projects have been divided into two types: (1) those that provide direct services to children and (2) dissemination projects. Projects in each of these types are summarized in a matrix display listing state, grantee, name of program, type of district, age/grade, and target population characteristics. A discussion of the Javits Act covering purpose, eligibility, types of projects funded, and source of further information is also provided. Individual project descriptions comprise most of the document and contain sections providing (1) general information, (2) program description, (3) program implementation, and (4) program evaluation. Among information provided for most projects is the following: project director, address, funding period, telephone, goals of program, program description, type of district, target population, selection criteria, identification procedures, number of children served, number of people involved in program implementation, type of preservice or inservice training, key conditions for replicating the program, cost of replicating the program, availability of technical assistance, most effective features of program, most surprising or challenging features of program, planned followup activities, and evaluation plan. A final section lists project directors, locations, and telephone numbers. (DB)

The purpose of this historical study was to examine the conceptual history of gifted education, the emergence of acceleration programs and to seek an understanding of the current perceptions of gifted education by using the lens of the past. A systematic review of the literature, presented by major proponents in the field of giftedness, suggests that minimal attention has been given to the foundational years of these concepts. Expressed to the reader in a prose narrative, the study employed a combination of historical and descriptive research that formed conclusions, which drew the data together into a fashioning of written history (Barzun & Graff, 1985). Four research objectives were the focus: (1) to conduct an historical investigation, using both chronicle and explanatory perspectives, of gifted education and the American educational system, (2) to identify pioneers, theoretical foundations and critical influences on gifted education, (3) to explore the educational options for gifted learners and (4) to summarize the legislative impact on gifted education. This study addressed the historical perspectives and foundation of the gifted child movement in this country; the delineation of the important pioneers in the field, and program flexibility in the education of talented students. Findings revealed the significance of defining giftedness, the importance of acceleration as the promise for the gifted, and the benefits to high school students as a result of better collaboration between secondary institutions and colleges. A review of the literature determined that gifted education remains a very contentious issue, both educationally and politically. This debate, which speaks to education being designed to serve the needs of society, as opposed to addressing the needs of the individual student continues today. The curriculum reforms offered to students of high intellect were initially met with great praise. It was thought that by raising the bar for the brightest students, the bar would be equally raised for all students. This resulted in an increase in student participation in acceleration programs. However, the programs are not without criticism. Therefore, the cycle progresses with praise and criticism, but one thing is clear; despite dramatic growth, there is still a great need for more research. (Contains 3 tables and 6 appendices.) [Ed.D.

In the mid 1970s, interest in accommodating the educational needs of gifted and talented children began its climb to higher levels with greater public awareness. Federal statements, definitions, funds, and professional staff were created, and state legislation formalized the existence and needs of gifted children. Now, as we head into a new millennium, this movement has taken a step backward due to a rise in a recommitment to equity in education, growing cooperative teaching, and the economics of funding a program. This book, however, continues to outline the best ideas that have come from leaders in gifted education. This up-to-date and well- organized best-seller begins with an overview of current issues and proceeds to characteristics of gifted students, program planning, and identification issues and methods. The problem of underachievement is covered as well as the challenges of parenting, understanding, and counseling gifted children. Designed for teachers and administrators who are seeking to teach gifted children, or to develop or enhance a program for gifted children.
