Studying Ordinary Events in a Field Devoted to the Extraordinary.
Coleman, Laurence J.
Peabody Journal of Education, v72 n3&4 p117-32 1997
Proposes changing the direction of studies on advanced development (giftedness), using Feldman's and Vygotsky's research to argue that the focus should be on ordinary parts of life which contribute to extraordinary achievement. The paper suggests the importance of studying people within a field over time, examining the individual and the situation in detail. Suggestions for conducting such studies are offered. (SM)
