Myth: There Must Be "Winners" and "Losers" in Identification and Programming!
Callahan, Carolyn M.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v26 n1 p17-19 Win 1982
Some identification and programing approaches for gifted students are said to shortchange all students and perpetuate a myth of exclusivity. The real issue, the author contends, is not whether the label "gifted" is affixed, but whether all children's needs are met through the regular curriculum or through adaptations. (CL)
