Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What does it really mean to be gifted and how can schools or other institutions identify, teach, and evaluate the performance of gifted children? The second edition of Conceptions of Giftedness describes the major conceptions of what it means to be gifted, and how these conceptions apply to identification, instruction, and assessment of the gifted. It will provide specialists with a critical evaluation of various theories of giftedness, give practical advice to teachers and administrators on how to put theories of gifted education into practice, and to enable the major researchers in the field to compare and contrast the strengths of their theoretical models.

Book News Annotation:

How can it be that a gifted and successful child becomes a gifted but failed adult? Can educators of the gifted actually direct their charges into productive lives that make the most of their gifts? In this collection of 24 articles, updated to reflect changes since the original of 1986, contributors offer theoretical guidance, translations of conceptions of giftedness into practice, and comparisons of perceptions. They cover the conception of giftedness, models to develop talents of the mathematically or verbally gifted, several models, including those that are child-responsive or developmental, creative achievement, gaining permission to be gifted, nurturing talent in gifted students of color, systematic approaches, contexts and subjectivity, feminist perspectives, a psychometric approach, the implications of an emergenic-epigenetic model, domain-specific giftedness, extreme giftedness, making giftedness productive, and conducting scientific studies of giftedness.
