On the Nature of Giftedness and Talent: Imposing Order on Chaos.
Morelock, Martha J.
Roeper Review, v19 n1 p4-12 Sep 1996
This article discusses theories on children's giftedness, including opposing movements in the gifted field--the Talent Development Movement and the Columbus Group Movement--which exemplify the "gifted achiever" and "gifted child" strands of research, theory, and practice. Vygotskian theory is suggested as a conceptual framework that can accommodate the multidimensionality of giftedness and talent. (CR)
