Charlie's Words: Supporting Gifted Male Athletes Using Athletes' Journals
Kent, Richard
Gifted Child Today, v35 n3 p187-196 Jul 2012
A gifted student-athlete, Charlie Bloomfield is introduced to athlete's journals by his coaches at Burke Mountain Academy (Vermont), an elite American ski school. Used by Olympians and professionals alike, journals provide athletes with ways to organize and reflect on training and competitions. Athlete's journals help gifted male athletes address identity development and create images of their emerging adult selves. The themes that emerged in Charlie's journals offer insight into this student-athlete's physical and social-emotional needs while suggesting the potential benefits of journals for gifted student-athletes like Charlie. (Contains 5 figures.)
