Exceptional Children Conference Papers: Creativity and the Gifted.
Council for Exceptional Children, Arlington, VA.
Discussed in the eight conference papers on creativity and the gifted implications of federal legislation for the gifted, the development of a composite measure of artistic creativity, and an empirical study of cognitive style and creative problem solving in junior high school students. A paper on the identification of creativity in writers compares two approaches to the study of creativity: the cognitive-factor approach, which emphasizes intellectual aspects of creativity, and a personality approach. Additional papers concern the effect of subject specialists on gifted children and the school program, identification of academically talented black students, curriculum for nurturing black talent, and similarities of attitudes and background factors among successful women.
