Cognizance of Gifted Education among Elementary-Education Professors from MCREL Member States
Chamberlin, Scott A.; Moore, Alan D.
Roeper Review, v29 n1 p49-54 2006
This study investigated the extent of knowledge professors reported in regards to gifted and talented education. Participants were college professors and instructors (N = 62) from 4-year teacher preparation institutions who taught elementary-education methods classes. All participants were employed in Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning states (Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming). Knowledge and demographic information was determined by using a 21-item online questionnaire. Data revealed that professor knowledge was moderate. It further revealed that professors who had not discussed GT issues during their undergraduate coursework were likely to minimize discussion of GT issues in elementary methods courses and they were likely to be employed by institutions that did not place an emphasis on GT issues.
