Ten Commandments for Academic Talent Development
Gagne, Francoys
Gifted Child Quarterly, v51 n2 p93-118 2007
This article describes a set of 10 positively stated commandments designed to guide professionals responsible for the academic talent development of K-12 students. The first four target identification procedures, the "who" of talent development; they ensue directly from the conceptual framework of my Differentiated Model of Giftedness and Talent. The next five pertain to intervention modalities, the "how" of talent development. The last one stands alone as a reminder of the need for realistic expectations and alternative life goals. Each of them includes detailed explanations aimed at clarifying its exact meaning as well as the reasons for its inclusion in that list. (Contains 2 tables, 1 figure, and 3 notes.)
