This theme issue on talent development in students who are gifted or have special talents contains several feature articles, editorials, and a calendar of events. Articles have the following titles and authors: "Talent Development in Education" (John F. Feldhusen) proposes four domains for fostering talent in all youth: academic-intellectual, artistic, vocation-technical, and interpersonal-social. "Schools Are Places for Talent Development: New Directions for the Schoolwide Enrichment Model" (Joseph S. Renzulli) discusses use of the total talent portfolio and integration of gifted education practices into general education. "The Development of Academic Talent" (Joyce VanTassel-Baska) urges the employment of two models of talent development--the traditional talent search model and a curriculum-based approach to upgrade the level of curriculum for all learners and reveal latent talent in academic and nonacademic areas. Other articles include: "Art Teachers, Child Art, and Abilities: Implications for the Concept of High Abilities in the Visual Arts" (Gilbert Clark); "Resolving Inequities: Discovery and Development of Talents in Student Populations Traditionally Underrepresented in Gifted and Talented Programming" (Donna Rae Clasen); and "Dealing with the Challenges of Reform and Restructuring: Will Gifted Education Survive?" (Donald J. Treffinger). (Most papers contain references.) (JDD)
