Effects of a Career Development Institute on the Images of the Future of Gifted Adolescents.
Torrance, E. Paul; And Others
Described is an evaluation of a career development institute on the images of the future of 191 gifted adolescents. It is explained that the institute provided opportunity for individual study of specific areas of societal problems, career opportunities in these problem areas, and varied methods of solving the problems. The two broad areas focused on in the institute are said to be social and political culture and science and technology. Results of pre- and post-test measures of Thinking Creatively About the Future indicated that the institute enriched the Ss' future images and made them more aware of the realities of the post industrial world.
