Providing for the bright and gifted; a manual for administrators by Harold H Bixler( Book )

3 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose is to assist administrators in understanding, organizing, and operating a comprehensive program for bright and gifted students. Aspects include identification of students who need special attention, counseling and guidance, selection and training of teachers for gifted programs, grouping in elementary and secondary schools, nongraded primary school, enrichment programs in regular classes, special classes, acceleration, and criteria for evaluating gifted programs. Summaries of accomplishments in areas of enrichment, special classes, seminars, summer school, curriculum planning, and ability grouping serve as guides for administrators seeking to extablish similar programs. It is hoped that administrators, realizing that identical education is not equal education, will be the leaders in planning a gifted child program

The superior and gifted student project at Cullowhee : a follow-up study by Harold H Bixler( Book )

2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early results in a longitudinal study on gifted students are reported. Programs were studied through questionnaires and by personal visits to parents and schools. Student programs as well as teacher-training programs were considered. Compilation of experiences in special classes at western carolina college have shown that all the children involved have been influenced by the program, though work must be done in the local schools to help meet the needs of gifted children. The administrator puts programs into action and should work closely with the teacher. The teacher's influence should motivate and stimulate her pupil. Students attending college classes while in high school acquired good study habits and skills and were provided with fine guidance and counseling services. Again more work is needed on the local level where special programs are not made available by colleges. A special teacher-training program was intiated by western carolina college. A teacher workshop and a leadership conference were direct results of this effort. Suggestions for improving teacher-training programs are included

Programs are aimed at developing better facility in skills of abstract thinking, organization, discriminating judgment, creative writing, and the ability to engage profitably in group activity. Included in the language program are such subjects as philosophy, practice of language skills, and literature assignments in the works of twain and poe. In the social studies program, emphasis is given to the strengthening of democratic aspects of our and other cultures. The greek, roman, english, african and other civilizations and cultures are studied. To meet the challenge of broadening and deepening mathematical maturity, enrichment is provided in meanings and principles, rather than in facts and procedures.

Practices in Teaching the Superior and Gifted. Final Report by Harold H Bixler( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A commission was set up by the state legislature to identify gifted students and to conduct research to find the best methods for teaching them. Pilot centers identified the gifted through tests and ratings and demonstrated teaching procedures as listed in the survey results. These schools were surveyed in 1960 to determine what programs were being successfully used in elementary and secondary schools. Of the 214 high schools reported, 91 used extra student loads (five solids in high schools), 70 provided enrichment in regular classes, 71 schools used ability grouping. Ability grouping involved the greatest numbers of students and teachers. It was common practice to form special interest groups of clubs. Seminars were provided for gifted students in six schools. Acceleration was accomplished in seven schools by student's skipping a grade. Skipping grades was recognized as unwise in many cases because very few schools had facilities for permitting students to do 2 years work in 1, or 3 years in 2. special classes for students with an intelligence quotient of 130 or over were increasing. Thirteen schools had this program. Most elementary schools used ability grouping of gifted students on a part-time basis because many of the schools were small. Enrichment was used quite frequently in the regular classrooms. Although there was some faculty resistance to full-time ability grouping, 68 of the 369 larger reporting schools provided this program. Sixty-five schools used special interest groups meeting irregularly during the day. Elementary schools faced the same problem in acceleration as the high schools. In one other survey, in the high schools, students did not seem to be thoroughly challenged in their courses. Another revealed that there was a good bit of ignorance and confusion about course offerings, implying that better counseling services were needed. These studies resulted in the passing of legislation in 1961 of behalf of gifted student programs
