The four issues of this newsletter include a variety of articles on education of the gifted. First, "Gifted Education: The Community Service Approach: The New Jersey Governor's School on Public Issues as a Case Study," by Daryl Capuano, describes this school's special emphasis, its curriculum, and effects on students. Next, "First Class Publishing for Gifted Students" (Teena Vaughn-D'Annibale) describes a curriculum organized around strategies for getting one's writing published. "Are There Additional Intelligences? The Case for Naturalist, Spiritual, and Existential Intelligences," by Howard Gardner, (appears in volume 2 and continues in volume 3), proposes three new "candidate intelligences" to add to the seven previously identified by the author. The following related article,"Multiple Intelligences and Gifted Education" (Colleen Willard-Holt and Dan G. Holt), relates the concept of multiple intelligences to identification of giftedness and suggests ways to use this concept in the curriculum. "Vancouver's Commitment to Gifted Education for Elementary Students," by Ross Butchart, describes referral, identification, and program components of the gifted education program in Vancouver, British Columbia. "Parents' Guide To Meeting the Social and Emotional Needs of Gifted Children" by James Carroll (appears in volume 3 and continues in volume 4), identifies common characteristics of gifted children and offers child-rearing suggestions to parents. "Jules Verne's Imaginative Power and Sensibility: A Living Legacy" (Michael E. Walters) offers a brief introduction to this author. Finally, "Nine Myths about Giftedness" (an excerpt from "Gifted Children: Myths and Realities" by Ellen Winner) addresses such common myths as global giftedness, the driving parent, and biology versus environment. Also included in each issue are announcements, book reviews, and poetry. (DB)
