ACCEL: Thoughts from the Field
Tebbs, Trevor J.
Roeper Review, v39 n4 p230-233 2017
This author responds to Sternberg (2017) and his article, "ACCEL: A New Model for Identifying the Gifted," published in his special issue of the "Roeper Review" focused on "wisdom in a changing world." Wisdom is evident throughout Sternberg's essay as he invites readers to consider the relevance of his ACCEL (Active Concerned Citizenship and Ethical Leadership) model in the context of its relationship to gifted individuals and the pressing need for change in society. The spiritual concept of wisdom and humanistic educational theory is implicit throughout this review. The author considers elements of the model's utility and implementation in light of his experience in the field as a veteran educator and consultant, his own research relating to self-efficacy of teachers' teaching critical thinking, the Kaleidoscope Project, and its similarities to his own Chandelier methodology. [For Sternberg's "ACCEL: A New Model for Identifying the Gifted," see EJ1148989.]
