Gifted adolescents: a handbook of test results by George Schlager Welsh( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Governor's School of North Carolina is a residential summer program for talented and gifted juniors and seniors from all over the state. It is designed to provide a distinctive educational experience and to serve as an experimental laboratory for innovative instruction. This handbook reports on an extensive testing program carried out at the school in 1963, 1964, and 1965. The test battery covered intellectual aptitude and ability, creativity, personality, adjustment, interests, values, attitudes, and motivation. The six measures used are described and the results are tabulated by sex, division (academic or arts), section (English, French, Painting, etc.), and by subsets of these categories. Twenty-six Adjective Check List (acl) profiles, 26 Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (mmpi) profiles, and 26 Strong Vocational Interest Blank (svib) profiles are included. It is suggested that these test results may be used for comparison with other groups of gifted or unselected adolescents. Suggestions are given for primary, secondary, and tertiary levels of analysis. Each of these is illustrated by use of the Governor's School results and national norms or other published results for one or more of the tests. Each of these analyses has considerable intrinsic interest. (Author/DG)

Opening windows onto the future : theory of the Governor's School of North Carolina by H. Michael Lewis( Book )

Presented is the curriculum theory designed for 400 gifted boys and girls, from rising junior and senior classes in high school, who attend the 8-week summer Governor's School (gs) of North Carolina. The main aim of the gs is given to be inspiring and guiding future leaders by providing opportunities for special aptitude, general conceptual, and personal/social development. The curriculum theory is said to challenge gifted students' theoretical ability with up-to-date theories in various fields of arts and sciences. It is maintained that theory rather than facts helps students cope with world views on the new physical universe of space-time and fluent process, new depth psychology concerning human behavior, and new moral and theological doctrines concerning man in the universe. Differential and learning characteristics of the gifted are reviewed to indicate the GS's rationale for centering on "conceptual intelligence". Examined in detail is an abstractive model of the mind which requires progressive inward movement from the concrete through stages of inspection (sensory), perception, imagination, and intellection to the undifferentiated continuum (unconscious or preconscious level) where the creative process occurs, and return to the concrete armed with interpretative theory. Reference is made to the concept of withdrawal and return of A. Toynbee. Area ii for general conceptual development is seen to include reorganization of the logical structure of thought and avoidance of old types of language for interpreting reality. Area iii is said to focus on teaching students the mechanisms of creativity and anxiety through use of the model. (Included is a streamlined illustration of a lesson in 20th century music showing in dialog form how the teacher leads students through deeper levels of thought to the abstract.) (Mc)
