What's in a Label?
Olenchak, F. Richard
Understanding Our Gifted, v13 n3 p4-6 Spr 2001
Discussion of the "gifted" label notes continuing social prejudice against academic talent and the concept of "demonstrability" applied to special talents. It concludes that the problem occurs when the label is not applied as an adjective to describe demonstrated productivity, past or present, but as a noun, as if it is a global static feature of an individual.
