A Proposed Direction Forward for Gifted Education Based on Psychological Science
Subotnik, Rena F.; Olszewski-Kubilius, Paula; Worrell, Frank C.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v56 n4 p176-188 Oct 2012
In this monograph, the authors advanced a set of interrelated arguments: The abilities of individuals do matter, particularly their abilities in specific talent domains; different talent domains have different developmental trajectories that vary as to when they start, peak, and end; and opportunities provided by society are crucial at every point in the talent development process. The authors argue that society must strive to promote these opportunities, but that individuals with talent also have some responsibility for their own growth and development. Furthermore, the research knowledge base indicates that psychosocial variables are determining influences in the successful development of talent. Finally, preparing young people for outstanding achievement or eminence ought to be the chief goal of gifted education. (Contains 3 figures.)
