Special Classes for the Gifted and Talented: A Review of Research in the Republic of China (Taiwan).
The presentation reviews research on the status of special educational programs for gifted and talented students in Taiwan. The effects of special class settings on gifted students' anxiety levels as well as on their self concept are considered. The author suggests that the studies cited do not demonstrate negative effects of special classes: anxiety does not appear to be significantly different between gifted children in special classes and regular children; nor are deleterious influences shown for gifted students' self concepts.
