Yoon, Yeu-Hong ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 12, issue 2, 2002, Pages 1~15
The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristics of preschoolers' giftedness by their parents' perception. Total 3 groups of 148 subjects from age 30 months to 6 years 10 months old young gifted children's parents participated. The major findings were as follows : (1) There were critical characteristics of preschoolers' giftedness by parents' perception, which were 'good memory', 'high curiosity', 'read and understand of math', 'enjoy of learning and high motivation', 'high concentration', reading books', 'verbal ability', 'creativity', 'questions', and 'independency', (2) These characteristics of preschoolers' giftedness showed more strong and intense as they got older, and (3) Some characteristics revealed more, but the other characteristics revealed less as they got older. These findings suggested the consideration of child's age as the reliable identification process of young gifted children.

The purpose of this study was to examine the sex role identity of children who are gifted in mathematics and sciences. In order to investigate the sex role identity types, Korean Sex Role Inventory was administered to 192 gifted and 128 normal children in elementary schools. The research findings are the followings: 1. There was no statistically significant difference in the sex role identity types between gifted boys and gifted girls. 2. There were statistically significant differences between gifted and normal groups. The gifted children are more androgynous and less undifferentiated than normal group. 3. Gifted boys were higher in androgyny and masculinity than the normal group. Gifted girls showed the same pattern.

Providing gifted education should be based on the principle of differentiation, that is, paying close attention to the individual characteristics of the gifted. The gifted are known to be the fast learners with autonomous studying ability and high levels of thinking and creativity, which certainly differentiate them from the ordinary others. Thus, the program for the gifted should fundamentally differ from other general programs. The need for gifted education is growing as our society has turned into the knowledge-based society. Fortunately, on December 28th, 1999, a law in favor of gifted education was passed. According to the law, gifted education will be actively provided under the government's support from the year 2002. In this context, this study is intended to search for the model of developing instructional materials for the gifted. The output materials of this study are to be used in gifted schools which will be built in the near future. The curriculum for the gifted consists of three parts: basic curriculum, in-depth curriculum, and optional curriculum. The learning and instructional materials developed in this study are to be used for the in-depth curriculum. In order to develop the materials, various theoretical models related to gifted education were reviewed. Finally, a theoretical model was developed. On the basis of the model, several instructional materials are developed and the possibility of application are considered.
The Development of Multiple Talents: Conceptualization and Empirical Studies
Wu, Wu-Tien ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 12, issue 2, 2002, Pages 59~69
A 4-year joint research project(1999-2003), entitled "The Development of Multiple Talents(DMT)", has been designed and carrying out under the sponsorship of the National Science Council, R.O.C. (Taiwan). A 3-dimension construct is proposed for the DMT: form of talents (10 forms, mainly based on Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences), function of talents (3 functions, based on Sternberg's conception of successfulintelligence), and developmental stage (4 stages, from pre-school to senior high). To take an example of its empirical studies, Wu and Chien (2000), based on a renovated conception of personal intelligence, developed the "Personal Intelligence Inventory" (PII). By means of the PII, it was found that there were some personal intelligence differences between gifted and regular pupils; however, gifted group was not as superior as on academic performance to the regular one (Wu & Chien, 2000). It was also found that there were significant relationships between pupils' personal intelligence and school adjustment in both groups (Tsai & Wu, 2000).

A study on characteristics, training, and employment of the teacher of the gifted
Kim, Hong-Won ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 12, issue 2, 2002, Pages 93~125
The purpose of this study is to identify the characteristics of the teachers of the gifted and to identify present status of the training and employment system of the teachers of the gifted in Korea. The characteristics of the teachers of the gifted were explained in three areas of philosophical understanding, experts' characteristics, and personal characteristics. This paper presented several suggestions to improve a system of employment and training of teachers of the gifted in Korea, and they were as follows: - To enhance the quality of training program. The training program should include various activities, for example, discussion, field trip, making a product, seminar, workshop, practice in various teaching models, etc., to foster creative and higher-order thinking abilities. - To prepare various kinds of training programs in consideration of various teachers' needs. - To provide a training successively. The 60 hours' training is not sufficient to be a good and effective teacher of the gifted. Successive training is needed. - To prepare various incentives which make many competent teachers to take part in gifted education. - To improve process to select and to employ the teacher of the gifted. Many teachers want an more open and strict scrutiny process to select and employ the teachers of the gifted.
