Kerr, Barbara A.
This paper discusses the current state of research in the area of career education for gifted and talented students and its applications. The paper also addresses three major questions: What are the special career development needs of gifted and talented students?, What kinds of career education and guidance programs are currently meeting the needs of gifted and talented students?, and How might the successful strategies of these programs be integrated into the gifted education provided in every school setting, large or small? Topics examined include multipotentiality, emotional maturity and long-range planning, societal expectations versus personal goals, high and low expectations of particular groups, integration of career education and guidance into gifted education, educational models, curriculum development, rural or small town school program integration, and urban and suburban school program integration. A list of resources for career education and guidance of gifted and talented students is appended. (CT)
