A Quiet Revolution: Finding Boys and Girls Who Reason Exceptionally Well and/or Verbally and Helping Them Get the Supplemental Educational Opportunities They Need
Stanley, Julian C.
High Ability Studies, v16 n1 p5-14 Jun 2005
The antecedents for the four regional annual talent searches for boys and girls who reason exceptionally well mathematically and/or verbally began in 1971 at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, with the creation of the "Study of mathematically precocious youth" under the direction of the author of this article, its originator. Here he traces the development and expansion that led to much experimentation during the 1970s and the formation in 1979 of what is now called the Center for Talented Youth and similar programs based at three other private universities in the United States. These cover the entire USA and cooperate with educators in a number of foreign countries, especially England, Ireland and Spain.
