Comparison of the Rearers of Creative Achievers in the East and the West
Moon, Yeon-Hee ; Han, Ki-Soon ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 20, issue 2, 2010, Pages 395~426
The purpose of this study was to delve into parents who turned their children into creative achievers in the East and the West in an attempt to determine the cultural generality and specificity of the rearing of gifted children. The subjects in this study were Western parents, who brought up Marie Curie, Einstein, Edison and Newton, and Eastern parents, who raised Lee Hwang, Lee lee, Jeong Yak-yong and Heo Nanseolheon. To compare their parenting characteristics, common denominators and differences, a variety of data were investigated, including historical records about the parents, biographies, critical biographies, autobiographies and letters. As to the common features of the parenting style of the eight Asian and Western parents, they were talented themselves or capable of educating their children in their talent areas, and provided them with optimal learning environments or chances without pushing them. They accentuated independent spirits and emphasized renovative and open way of thinking. And at least one parent in each family showed absolute support for their child. Regarding differences in parenting style between the East and the West, the Western parents urged their children to develop their talents with more intention, rather the Asian parents prized the well-rounded personality and growth of their children. The former interacted with their children in an horizontal manner, but the latter had a vertical relationship with their children. The former expressed their feelings in an active way, but the latter had their emotion in control. Besides, the Western parents disclosed themselves to their children by showing them even their mistakes or improper behaviors, whereas the Asian parents strived in everyday life to give their children a good example or a good role model.

Yim, Geun-Gwang ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 20, issue 2, 2010, Pages 461~486
By learning math, constructing math problems helps us to improve analytical thinking ability and have a positive attitude and competency towards math leaning. Especially, gifted students should create math problems under certain circumstances beyond the level of solving given math problems. In this study, I examined the math problems made by the gifted students after the process of raising questions and discussing them for themselves by doing origami. I intended to get suggestions by analyzing of problem posing strategy and method facilitating the thinking of mathematics gifted students in an origami program.

Yoo, Mi-Hyun ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 20, issue 2, 2010, Pages 487~502
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of SSC(Small-Scale Chemistry) lab program applying to scientifically gifted students' classes. The participants were 15 the middle school scientifically gifted students selected and enrolled in science-gifted education center of university. SSC lab program was applied for 3 month with 5 topics. The research design was one group pretest-posttest design, the data were analyzed using the PASW 18 statistics program. The results of this study were as follows: First, the scientific attitude of scientifically gifted students was improved significantly(p<.01) after applying SSC lab program. Especially, there were significant difference between pre-test and post-test in the scores of cooperativity, spontaneity, perseverance, which were the sub-region of scientific attitude. Second, the creative personality characteristics of scientifically gifted students showed statistically significant improvements(p<.01) after applying SSC lab program. Especially, there was significant difference between pre-test and post-test in the scores of adhesion, which was a sub-region of the creative personality characteristics. Third, there were no significant differences in the science inquiry skills between before and after applying the SSC lab program in the scientifically gifted students' classes(p>.05). The results suggest that SSC Lab program is an effective program in scientifically gifted students' classes.

We investigated the brain activity in perceiving the emotional stimuli between a science invention group(n=13) and a general group(n=13). The science invention group, which mostly consisted of recipients of creativity prizes, scored 96% on creative personality tests(WKOPAY, SAM), whereas the general group performed at an average level on these tests. Analyzing the brain activity in perceiving the emotional stimuli(IAPS pictures), the science invention group than the general group showed higher activity in certain areas, such as MTG, STG, and so on. When correlation analysis was performed on the creative personality score and brain activity, MTG, STG, and so on areas showed significant correlations. There were more correlation areas in valence than in arousal. These results show that scientific creativity is related to emotional susceptibility. Thus, we insist that emotion be considered in the assessment and education programs for the gifted in science.
The Highest Achievers' Gender Characteristics in Elementary Science Process Skills of Problem Solving
Park, Byung-Tai ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 20, issue 2, 2010, Pages 527~546
As research results, male schoolchildren were found to solve problems more easily in the area of basic process skills while female schoolchildren were found to solve problems in the area of integrated process skills. Schoolboys showed the high tendency to solve problems in a planning pattern by memory, or solving pattern in which they are fully aware of the contents of both questions and choices in answer sheets, or the pattern which they are fully aware of distracters in answer sheets; in contrast, schoolgirls showed a high tendency to get a good result by analyzing both questions & choices in answer sheets or analyzing a chart, graph and illustration, which explains that female schoolchildren tend to solve problems in more diverse ways than male schoolchildren. In case of a poor achiever, male schoolchildren tend to make a failure while trying to find answers in an inadequately understood state or trying to solve on mistaken memories while doing questions immediately while female schoolchildren showed a lot of solving patterns based on mistaken memories or wrong analyses of a chart, illustration, or graph. Such results are believed to offer the implications on the understanding of male/female schoolchildren in their problem-solving pattern of their exploratory ability in elementary science and on its subsequent program development.

Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 20, issue 2, 2010, Pages 547~570
The purpose of this study was to find the personal and environmental background variables that influence to the gifted students in arts. 59 gifted students and their parents in Korean National Institute for the Gifted in Arts completed the questionnaire. The results were as follows: This study showed that the characteristic of gifted students, the developmental process of talent, and contributing factors to the growth of arts. Personal characteristics of gifted students in arts showed significantly difference in three fields of arts. As the environmental background, parents of gifted have offered them the extensive support financially and emotionally and also had high interest in Arts. The reliance on private education versus public education in arts was high. Expecially, gifted students of music and dancing fields was relying more on private education than artistically gifted students. This study was examined for the empirical study of the gifted in arts. The limitations of the study and the suggestion for further study for the gifted were discussed.

Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 20, issue 2, 2010, Pages 571~594
Learning styles affect how students access and handle their task, so it is very important to understand how they study, when planning teaching-learning process, to enhance their potential to the maximum. In addition, in order to improve the quality of gifted education, there is a need to examine the curriculum and teaching-learning process which reflect learner characteristics. In this study, gifted student's preferred learning styles are investigated using questionnaires and learning style inventory. Also by analyzing the characteristics of the learners, it is hoped to get parents and teachers to understand the gifted who have various talents, and to support teaching programs for the gifted in order to develop their potential. This study shows that there are differences in the studying style between the gifted child and the average child. Namely, learner's physical and psychological environment can affect learning styles. Also there is a difference between the studying style which the gifted students prefer and the teaching style which teachers use most frequently. Programs for the gifted should be planned through better understanding of the characteristics of the learners.
Construct Validity of Korean Translated Gifted Rating Scale
Lee, Dong-Hyuck ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 20, issue 2, 2010, Pages 595~619
This study examined the construct validity of a Korean translated version of the Gifted Rating Scales-School Form (GRS-S). Data were collected from five elementary schools in a metropolitan area and a midsize town in South Korea. Confirmatory factor analysis results indicated that the original factor structure (6-factor solution) fit the data collected from the teachers. However, the 6-factor solution did not fit the data collected from the parents. Thus, exploratory factor analysis was conducted for the parent data. The results showed that seven factors were extracted, and the factors explained 71.96% of the total variance. Unlike the original factor structure, some items of the academic ability scale were grouped with intellectual ability scale, and a creativity scale item and another academic ability scale item were an independent factor. The study outcomes provide preliminary support for a translated version of the GRS-S with elementary students in Korea. More detailed interpretations and implications of the results are discussed in the study.

Jin, Hyun-Jung ; Choe, Ho-Seong ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 20, issue 2, 2010, Pages 621~647
The purpose of this study was to develop and validate of the K-SRBCSS (Korean Version of Scales for Rating the Behavioral Characteristics of Superior Students), considering educational-social context and linguistic differences. The developed K-SRBCSS includes 58 items, which are consisted of 55 items from translation of original SRBCSS into Korean and three newly developed items that reflect Korean situation. Teachers and parents rated students' behavioral characteristics about 58 items in 6 scales. The results of this study were as follows. K-SRBCSS is valid and reliable scale. The differences of the rating of characteristics between gifted students and general students if significant. Gifted students got higher scores on every scales than general students. It means K-SRBCSS is useful to discriminate the gifted. The differences of the rating between parents and teachers showed insignificant results, which mean that teachers and parents rate students's characteristics similarly. K-SRBCSS will be a very useful scale that could find some hidden talents if this scales would use complementarily with other sophistication methods in identifying the gifted.
