Secondary GT in RISD

September 12-16, 2016

Greetings to our GT Team!

The third issue of the Gifted Education Review is now available. Click on the link below to read the latest issue. It is full of great articles and research!

Articles in this issue include:

  • When in Rome: Technology, Creativity, and Language Arts by Melanie Myer
  • The Power of the Passion Project: Part Two by Kelly Margot
  • Advanced Study Habits for Developing Self-Directed Learners by J. Helen MacGregor and Todd Kettler
  • Book Finds by Laila Sanguras
  • Current Research in Gifted Education by Jeb Puryear

The purpose of the Gifted Education Review is to “bridge the gap between researchers and practitioners.” We hope to accomplish this by selecting the most useful research for practitioners in the field of Gifted and Talented education and presenting it in an easily digestible manner that summarizes the findings and addresses the practical implications in the classroom. In addition, we will include articles with practical advice by practitioners on the frontlines of Gifted and Talented education.

The Gifted Education Review is provided to you for free by The Passionate Mind Institute, a 501(c)3 nonprofit institution dedicated to research, education, and support in the fields of creativity, giftedness and talent, and the arts
