Giftedness and Gifted Education: The Need for a Paradigm Change
Ziegler, Albert; Stoeger, Heidrun; Vialle, Wilma
Gifted Child Quarterly, v56 n4 p194-197 Oct 2012
This commentary addresses Subotnik et al.'s target article from the perspective of researchers active in the field of giftedness. First, we self-critically examine the current standing of giftedness research within the scientific community. Second, the authors' critique of gifted education is sharpened in three respects: (a) gifted identification, (b) effectiveness of gifted education, and (c) credentials of gifted education. Finally, four necessary and productive lines for future research are proposed. (Contains 4 notes.)
