Restructuring Special Programs to Reflect the Distinctions Between Children's and Adult's Experiences with Giftedness.
Subotnik, Rena F.; Olszewski-Kubilius, Paula
Peabody Journal of Education, v72 n3&4 p101-16 1997
Longitudinal, retrospective, and cross-sectional data on the relationship between giftedness in childhood and adulthood indicate that children who became eminent adults did not necessarily fit conceptions of giftedness driving current school programs. The paper presents directions for school gifted programs and perspectives for families that are more consistent with current knowledge about the evolution of high-level talent. (SM)
