Educating the Gifted Child: Challenge and Response in the U.S.A.
Khatena, Joe
Considered in the paper are past and current developments in the education of gifted and talented students in the United States. Discussed are the following aspects: identification (including specific evaluations of giftedness, and distinctions between creativity and I.Q.); programing methods and approaches (such as creative problem solving techniques and creative thinking operations); problems of the highly gifted (including confrontations with peers brought on by nonconformity and independence); support for special educational opportunities (such as the establishment of the Office of Education for the Gifted and Talented and the National Leadership Training Institutes); and implications and future directions (including an increase in teacher training programs for the gifted and talented, and the development of technical assistance centers).
