Gowan are 12 outstanding research studies conducted during the past 25 years regarding identification and education of gifted students, and discussed are curricular models for stimulating their development and creativity. Discussed in a section on parent involvement are state and federal legislation, funding and special education policies concerning programs for the gifted (N. Bingaman); procedures for launching parent groups (S. Gutin and R. Manning); and suggestions for fostering giftedness, insuring appropriate public school opportunities, and raising the gifted child in a single parent family (J. Gowan). A final section on teacher involvement contains three brief papers on humanities (J. Farr); Stimulating creativity (L. Roslund and M. Stitt); and guidance for teachers. (LH)
