A RESUME OF SELECTED RESEARCH ON SUPERIOR AND TALENTED HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.
SOCHEN, JUNE
THE CHARACTERISTICS, IDENTIFICATION, MOTIVATION, GUIDANCE AND ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS OF TALENTED STUDENTS ARE PRESENTED. GIFTED CHILDREN ARE CHARACTERIZED BY THE EARLY DEVELOPMENT OF SELF-CRITICISM, INDEPENDENCE AND INITIATIVE IN THINKING, AND IN THE ABILITY TO SEE RELATIONSHIPS, TO MAKE ASSOCIATIONS, TO ADAPT PRINCIPLES TO CONCRETE SITUATIONS, AND TO OBSERVE AND REMEMBER DETAILS. A RESEARCH STUDY BY GETZELS AND JACKSON ON THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE GIFTED STATES THAT CREATIVITY APPEARS TO LIE IN THE ABILITY TO PRODUCE NEW FORMS, TO CONJOIN ELEMENTS THAT ARE CUSTOMARILY THOUGHT OF AS INDEPENDENT OR DISSIMILAR, NOT MERELY THE ABILITY FOR SEEING THE BIZARRE, BUT RATHER THE APTITUDE FOR ACHIEVING NEW MEANINGS HAVING SOCIAL VALUE. IN THE AREA OF MOTIVATION, A STUDY BY PIERCE AND BOWNAN SHOWS THAT HIGH ACHIEVING GIRLS AIM THEIR AMBITION TOWARDS COLLEGE OR MARRIAGE. SINCE MARRIAGE IS MORE DESIRABLE AND A SOCIALLY ACCEPTED GOAL, GIRLS OFTEN CHOOSE THIS COURSE AND TRANSFER THEIR ACHIEVEMENT DRIVE TO MARRYING AN ACHIEVER. IN GUIDANCE OF THE GIFTED, PROVISIONS SHOULD BE BASED UPON INDIVIDUAL NEEDS, RECORDS OF STUDENT PROGRESS, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF A POSITIVE SELF-CONCEPT. ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS INCLUDE ACCELERATION, ABILITY GROUPING, AND ENRICHMENT.
