Response to "A Quality of Giftedness"
Miller, Rachelle; Gentry, Marcia
Gifted and Talented International, v27 n2 p47-48 2012
Do some individuals with gifts and talents hold special qualities that make them different from other people? Like Joan Freeman mentioned in "A Quality of Giftedness," individuals who display high quality gifts tend to be more recognizable, but they may not necessarily become productive adults. How do we find those students who may not be so recognizable, but who have the potential to develop their talents and become extremely productive as adults? In order to recognize and enhance the talents of individuals with high potential, nontraditional measures and multiple pathways should be used to ensure that students who might not be traditionally recognizable gifted are discovered, developed, and served. This commentary discusses how the authors' work with Project HOPE (Having Opportunities Promotes Excellence) has indicated that high-potential students from low-income families can successfully enhance their talents in an out-of-school enrichment program.
