Gifted Children: Do We Deserve Them?
Reid, Neil
A review of research on gifted children covers topics which include the changing conception of giftedness, the identification of gifted children, and types of educational programs for the gifted. It is reported that over the years the term giftedness has referred primarily to intellectual ability. Problems involved in identifying the creative and/or talented individual are discussed. Educational methods such as enrichment, grouping or segregation, and acceleration are reviewed. Among the conclusions drawn are that the criteria for identifying the gifted child have broadened; that improvement must be made in reviewing and updating programs for the gifted; and that special attention must be paid to gifted girls and talented individuals from socially disadvantaged groups. Also provided is a list of discussion questions. (SB)
