Historical Perspectives: The 1958 Conference Report
Jolly, Jennifer L.
Gifted Child Today, v37 n2 p119-122 Apr 2014
From February 6 to 8, 1958, approximately 200 educators and interested individuals were invited to New York City in hopes of discussing the education of academically talented students at the secondary level. Topics included identification, programming options, the social emotional well-being of students, and the limited resources allocated to talented students. The author concludes that the issues addressed are eerily similar to gifted education today.
