Career Education for Gifted and Talented Persons.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
The career education movement is briefly summarized, and some of the special problems involved in developing career education programs for gifted and talented students are discussed. The terms "work", "career", and "education" are defined, and it is noted that the term "career education" refers to all activities and experiences through which one learns about, prepares for, and gains satisfactions from work. Some of the existing career education programs (such as Workshops for Careers in the Arts, Washington, D.C. and Project TALENT Demonstration Centers, California) for gifted and talented persons are listed. Six problems (such as the danger of assuming that the gifted and talented have special responsibilities to use their gifts and/or talents in the world of paid employment) in providing effective career education to gifted and talented students are described.
