In teaching-learning situations considered "good" for educating the more able children, certain characteristics seem pervasive:
◆ Principals who demonstrate educational and community leadership, who know what it takes to make a good school, and who encourage growth in both children and teachers.
Teachers who encourage and inspire children to ask and find out, develop their own powers, experiment, go beyond the obvious, and think critically and creatively.
Materials and opportunities in abundance and readily available to facilitate growth in all types of children: books for information and pleasure; laboratory material to aid in seeing, doing, and understanding; trips for firsthand information; and opportunities to explore many cultural and scientific areas.
A learning environment that supports individual counseling, activity, and study; individual and group work; and creativity in all its aspects.
