Dare, Lynn; Nowicki, Elizabeth Agnes – Roeper Review, 2015
Twice-exceptional students have high abilities and coexisting learning difficulties. Abilities and difficulties tend to mask each other, and these underidentified students often struggle in school and express their frustrations at home.

Although creativity and expertise are related, they are nonetheless very different things. Expertise does not usually require creativity, but creativity generally does require a certain level of expertise.

Piechowski, Michael M. – Roeper Review, 2014
Some terms of Dabrowski's theory are misleading. The construct of level and the concepts of integration and disintegration mean different things. The concept of primary integration as a starting point for personality development is untenable in light of research on child development. In its place, Level I as a type of development that is…

Rauh, John – Roeper Review, 2014
Advanced Placement (AP) courses within secondary English education can fail to meet the needs of gifted students in the postmodern era.
