PRODUCTIVE THINKING OF GIFTED CHILDREN.
GALLAGHER, JAMES J.
IDENTIFICATION OF PRODUCTIVE THOUGHT PROCESSES IN INTELLECTUALLY GIFTED CHILDREN WAS BROUGHT WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF CLASSROOM VERBAL ACTIVITY AT THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL. RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THESE THOUGHT PROCESSES AND CERTAIN VARIABLES THAT MAY AFFECT THEIR OPERATION IN THE CLASSROOM WERE ASSESSED. AREAS EXPLORED WERE COGNITIVE STRUCTURE AND PROCESS, COGNITIVE STYLE, THE DEVELOPMENT OF MEASURING INSTRUMENTS, THE IMPLICATIONS OF SEX DIFFERENCES, AND THE TEACHING ENVIRONMENT OF THE CLASSROOM. A SEPARATE, SELF-CONTAINED UNIT BY WILLIAM C. JENNE ENTITLED "THE FAMILIES OF GIFTED CHILDREN" IS APPENDED. ITS BASIC PURPOSE WAS TO ATTEMPT TO GAIN INSIGHTS INTO THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FAMILY ENVIRONMENT AND THE GIFTED CHILD'S PERFORMANCE BOTH IN THE CLASSROOM AND ON PAPER AND PENCIL TESTS OF DIVERGENT ABILITY. THE PROCEDURE FOR GATHERING DATA, INSTRUMENTS AND CLASSIFICATIONS USED IN THE ANALYSES, AND RESULTS OF THE FACTOR ANALYSES ARE DISCUSSED. A SPECIAL ANALYSIS OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PARENTAL EMPHASIS ON THE CHILD'S ACHIEVEMENT AND INDEPENDENCE AND THE CHILD'S CLASSROOM PERFORMANCE IS INCLUDED.
