Griggs); "Giftedness, Creativity, and Learning Style: Exploring the Connections" (Donald J. Treffinger and Edwin C. Selby); and "Reaching Creatively Gifted Students through Their Learning Styles" (Mark A. Runco and Shawn Okuda Sakamoto). Part 2 presents data on the learning styles of gifted and talented learners in nine countries. Following is a list of the countries covered, with the names of the papers' authors: United States (Rita Dunn and others); Israel (Roberta M. Milgram and Gary E.
