The Construct of Giftedness.
Borland, James H.
Peabody Journal of Education, v72 n3&4 p6-20 1997
Outlines the development of the construct of giftedness, asserting that giftedness is not a fact of nature or something discovered by educators and psychologists but rather a recently invented, socially constructed concept. Reviews the evolution of this construction and discusses practical implications of its application in education, speculating about ways that the construct may evolve in the future. (SM)
