The Power of Specialized Educational Environments in the Development of Giftedness: The Need for Research on Social Context
Coleman, Laurence J.
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v37 n1 p70-80 Mar 2014
The paper argues that educators of the gifted have overlooked important evidence on the power of special environments because of our habit of considering cognitive outcomes and an outsider view of evidence as the standard for judging the benefits of special environments. The author proposes that social context be used as a construct to help rethink how to study the benefits of special environments.
