Scientifically Gifted

"Recent studies have also identified the materials that are most appropriate for use with high ability students in elementary science programs, citing those that provide a balance of content and process considerations, including an emphasis on original student investigations, concept development, and interdisciplinary applications. Other studies suggest the importance of science mentors and more emphasis on laboratory-based science as central tenets of providing high-end learning opportunities in science at all levels." Joyce VanTassel-Baska, Planning Science Programs for High-Ability Learners

Learning and Understanding: Improving Advanced Study of Mathematics and Science in U.S. High Schools Recommended Center for Education
Results of a 2-year effort by a National Research Council (NRC) committee to examine programs for advanced study of mathematics and science in U.S. high schools. The committee focused on the two most widely recognized programs in the United States, and the only two of national scope: Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB). The committee also identified alternatives to IB and AP and addressed specific questions about advanced study...

Pop Goes the Science Song by Randy Dotinga, WIRED
When he feels like livening up his biology classes, UofW lecturer Greg Crowther bursts into song to the melody of "Sugar Sugar," the bubble-gum '60s tune. "Glucose, ah sugar sugar," he sings. "You are my favorite fuel from the bloodborne substrate pool / Glucose -- monosaccharide sugar -- you're sweeter than a woman's kiss / 'cause I need you for glycolysis."  Singing educators recognize that song is a very effective way to teach...
 
Primed for Numbers by Rich Monasterky, The Chronicles of Higher Education
Are boys born better at math? Experts try to divide the influences of nature and nurture.  Lawrence H. Summers, president of Harvard University, had said that "intrinsic" differences in aptitude between the sexes might be an important reason that men dominate the science-and-engineering work force.  Researchers who study gender differences say Mr. Summers's emphasis on innate aptitude simply doesn't add up...

The Science Education Myth by Vivek Wadhwa in Business Week
Forget the conventional wisdom. U.S. schools are turning out more capable science and engineering grads than the job market can support. We need to get our priorities straight. Education is really important... But emphasizing math and science education over humanities and social sciences may not be the best prescription for the U.S. We need our children to receive a balanced and broad education.

Scientists debate wait on the next Einstein by Joseph B. Verrengia, Associated Press
There are many other factors working against another Einstein emerging anytime soon...  "Maybe there is an Einstein out there today," said Columbia University physicist Brian Greene, "but it would be a lot harder for him to be heard."
 
Thinking Creatively About Science: Suggestions for Primary Teachers by Karen S. Meador, in Gifted Child Today
