About the Authors
  • 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.

    • A book such as this one would help specialists in the field of giftedness choose a model with which to work
    • Addresses need for translation of conceptions of giftedness into practice
    • Provides teachers of the gifted with comparisons of conceptions and to know the similarities and differences among the conceptions

    Reviews & endorsements

    "In spite of the perceived shortcomings, the second edition of Conceptions of Giftedness is a welcome addition to the field of gifted education. As was true of its predecessor, it will be required reading for any serious scolar in gifted education. One can only hope that it will not take another 20 years before the appearance of a third addition." PsycCritiques, Michael C. Pyrt
