Talent as an Alternative Conception of Giftedness.
Feldhusen, John F.
Gifted Education International, v11 n3 p124-27 1996
Discusses definitions of giftedness, including the use of talent as a more effective term for giftedness. Argues that the concept of giftedness is closely linked to general intelligence and is of limited usefulness in understanding and educating youth with special abilities, while talents represent special aptitudes that can be individually targeted in students' educational experiences.
