Motivating the Gifted, Talented, Creative. A Meta-Analysis.
Shaughnessy, Michael F.
The main theories of motivation are reviewed in an effort to help teachers discern various tactics and techniques that they can use with gifted, talented, and creative students. Among the theories examined are Ivan Pavlov's respondent conditioning; Albert Ellis's rational-emotive approach; Abraham Maslow's triangular approach to growth and motivation; B. F. Skinner's reinforcement theory; Piaget's equilibration and challenge; B. S. Bloom's taxonomy of educational objectives; Carl Rogers's writings as further developed by Glover, Bruning, and Filbeck; Victor Frankl's humanistic approach; and Rollo May's existential approach. The meta-analysis of these motivation theories is briefly discussed in order to facilitate their implementation within an educational and humanistic framework. (VW)
