Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 19, issue 1, 2009, Pages 1~23
Science field trip is a comprehensive learning activity in which students can solve problems by themselves, whose importance is emphasized in learning for the gifted. But because not much study has been done yet on this, and convergent activities such as solving too many problems or requesting given answers have generally been done, it has been criticized for not being enough to develop the abilities of gifted Students. Therefore, this study attempted to analyze the activity process of the gifted through field trip to which open inquiry is adapted so that the demands of the gifted can be met, and the abilities of the gifted can be brought out. The study focused on 18 gifted elementary science students at Institute of Science Gifted Education, Cheongju National University of Education, and in the field trip process of the students, analyzed the types of establishment of inquiry problems and inquiry process, and the behavioral characteristics of gifted science students shown during field trip activity through field trip proceedings, transcript contents, poster materials, questionnaires, etc. As a result, more inquiry problems were established after than before inquiry, and the level of inquiry problems was also higher after inquiry. The solution process for inquiry problems of the gifted science students were done in the following order: planning, inquiring, follow-up inquiring and consolidating. But it proceeded to open inquiry process, the next stage being decided according to circumstances. Also, in the inquiry that the students did, diverse factors were revealed such as basic and integrative inquiries, and especially, the students were competent in analyzing the results after transforming and interpreting them. And the analysis of the interaction among the students showed many behavioral traits of talented science students.

Comparison of Mathematical Thinkings Based on the Development Process of Two Brothers Talented in Math: A Case Study
Cho, Cha-Mi ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 19, issue 1, 2009, Pages 47~67
This paper is about a case study of two brother talents who have a similar genetic factor The researcher who worked as a teacher of the Institute of Talent Education where the two brothers attended for 3 years analyzed and compared the influential variables through the interview of both the students and their parents. Parents have invested to the elder brother showing geniuses so they disciplined him suppressively out of too much expectation. However, they allowed his brother, who showed talents later, more automaticity, supporting him when he himself wanted to study. As a result, the younger brother showed a more creative thinking ability, and a better school performance This paper is significant in that parents's positive disciplining attitude maximize children's genius.

The purpose of this study was to develop and apply a Korean language education program based on multiple intelligences in a bid to foster the multiple intelligences, self-efficacy and achievement motivation of elementary schoolers in regular language arts class. It's basically meant to create the educational conditions for every child to exert his or her abilities. Two research questions were posed: 1. What should be the objectives, content and teaching-learning methods of a Korean language education program based on multiple intelligences? 2. What effect does a Korean education program based on multiple intelligences have on children's multiple intelligences, self-efficacy and achievement motivation? The subjects in this study were 58 Students in two different third-grade classes in M elementary school in the city of Daejeon. A Korean language education program based on multiple intelligences was implemented during a 4month period of time, and an inclusive approach of multiple intelligences and cooperative learning were applied. The major findings of the study were as follows: First, in order to develop a Korean education program based on multiple intelligences, the kinds of themes that could cover multiple intelligences in an inclusive way were selected in consideration of the learning objectives of the major units of a third-grade language arts textbook(second semester) of the 7th national elementary language arts curriculum. And then an inclusive Korean education program was prepared, which consisted of four stages: problem awareness, problem-solving planning, problem solving, and reflection/application/development. Second, the Korean education program based on multiple intelligences had a positive effect on the children's multiple intelligences, self-efficacy and achievement motivation and suggested some of new directions for school education that typically stressed linguistic and logical-mathematical intelligences only.

This study investigated the relationships of the self-regulated learning strategies used in both science and English classes and motivation to academic performance of science-gifted high school students. Participants of this study were 144 freshmen of Korea Science Academy It was found out that the use of self-regulation learning strategies and motivation exerts differential influence on the academic performance of science-gifted students, depending on the subjects they study. Results showed that they used more vigorously in science class those self-regulated strategies which consist of cognition, metacognition, and resource management strategies than in English class. In addition, their motivation level in science class was significantly higher than that in English class. Self-regulated strategies did not explain any variance in physics GPA. Task value among the motivation variables accounted for 2 percent of variance in physics GPA. Metacognition and time and study environment variables explained 8 percent and 15 percent of variance in English GPA, respectively. Self-efficacy in motivation accounted for 30 percent of variance in English GPA, These results were discussed in the light of instruction for science-gifted high students.

This paper examined its possibility and made its new definition by finding relevant bases in order to make a close inquiry into its Identity and direction at this point when cyber-based gifted education academy is established and operated again by its necessity And 4 models which can be used in special education for the gifted were developed making a link with special education for the gifted by collecting and re-classifying cyber educational methods developed by basic research as priority of the educational method which is considered to be the most urgent issue in practical cyber learning. It is a project-type cooperation education model, an information collection-type research education model, a community-type discussion education model, and a problem focus-type e-PBL education model. To apply developed leaching-learning models to reality, students at gifted education academy in Gyeonggi Cyber Gifted Province were imputed models in different ways respectively for 4 months. As a result of analysis and statistical data of activity level and satisfaction level of students who participated in learning activity, it appeared that high level of satisfaction and active activity level were induced compared to the previous method based on tasks. It is expected that this paper will provide the bases when each cyber-based gifted education academy plans operation plan later on, and it will provide proper methods when cyber guidance teachers plan class activities.
