Career Education for Gifted and Talented Persons.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
The author briefly justifies work on a book entitled "Career Education for Gifted and Talented Students" and comments on four problems in the delivery of effective career education to the gifted and talented. Listed among reasons for choosing the book's topic is that career education is for all individuals, including the gifted and talented. Sections are given to the following areas: career decision making problems (such as lack of interest in nonacademic activities); talent development problems (such as the failure to develop as a whole person because of concentration on a particular talent area); work experience problems (such as finding talented individuals in the community for whom gifted and talented students could work); and career selection problems (such as the assumption that gifted and talented individuals should use their gifts and talents in the world of paid employment).
