Subotnik, Rena F.
Gifted Child Today, v38 n1 p41-48 Jan 2015
Great performance is a wonder to observe. We may notice creativity, excellent technique, or content mastery. What we may not notice is a set of mental and social skills that allow a person to show his or her best work. This article recommends that these psychosocial skills be explicitly and deliberately cultivated via programming, coaching, and counseling of gifted students as part of their talent development in any domain of ability.
