Teach Students What They Don't Know but Are Ready to Learn: A Commentary on "Rethinking Giftedness and Gifted Education"


Journal Article (Review)

We were thrilled to see an article focusing on giftedness, written by such thoughtful and well-respected researchers as Subotnik, Olszewski-Kubilius, and Worrell (2011). The expansive scope of their synthesis is so impressive that it could serve as a crash course introduction to gifted education. In our commentary, we focus specifically on the perspective of education service delivery. From this perspective, we review their guiding principles, chief goal, and provide some follow-up questions for further clarification as well as an implementation option also based on talent development. © 2012 National Association for Gifted Children.
