The Years of Transformation. Factors Associated with the Educational Utilization of Human Talent, Part 2. Final Report.
McGuire, Carson
This is a report on changes taking place in boys and girls (288 Anglo boys and 288 Anglo girls) studies in the Human Talent Research Program during their years in the junior high schools of four Texas communities. Influenced by the emergent zeitgeist, or spirit of the times, the subjects were observed as they progressed from preadolescence through adolescence, particularly in regard to both intellectual and talented behavior, which is defined as behavior of an individual in a situation wherein performance is evaluated within a framework of expectations. Literature reviews on behavior change together with discussions on intelligence theories are presented. Models for representing sets of behavioral capabilities are described and diagrammed. External as well as internal pressures on the population are noted. Results and bibliographies are included in each chapter, and statistical data and a description of variables are presented in a special index. (Author/CJ)
