Theories and the Good: Toward Child-Centered Gifted Education.
Grant, Barry A.; Piechowski, Michael M.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v43 n1 p4-12 Win 1999
Examines the role of theory in gifted education and argues that the most important educational value should be child-centeredness, with theories serving as ways to understand the gifted child's perspective. However, many theories are seen as focusing overly much on achievement to the detriment of the child's inner life and emotional well-being. (DB)
