Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 21, issue 1, 2011, Pages 1~17
DOI : 10.9722/JGTE.2011.21.1.001
The aim of this research is to see if there are any relationships between reading disposition, career attitude maturity and self-leading learning trait among gifted and general elementary school students. The research results show that: in reading disposition, gifted students showed higher result compared to the general students at reading interest and reading experience, but were not different in reading environment. Also, gifted students showed higher results in career attitude maturity in determination, purposes, assurance, but were not different in readiness and independence. Additionally, gifted students showed higher results at self-directed learning in 8 sub-categories, which are openness to learning, self notion, taking-initiative ability, responsibility, learning zeal, future-oriented self-knowledge, creativity, and self assessment. In addition, the research indicates that career attitude maturity is correlated with reading interest, reading experience and reading environment. Also, self-leading learning is correlated with reading interest, reading experience and reading environment. On the basis of this research, the following are suggested. The research was conducted for elementary school students in 4th~6th grades. Hence, the research needs to be extended to middle school and high school students. And, in order to guide students' careers and improve students' self-leading learning ability, those results need to be applied to real educational situations. In addition, research need to be done to find out what kind of books have more effect on career attitude maturity and self-directed learning trait.

Cho, Sun-Ok ; Son, Jeong-Woo ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 21, issue 1, 2011, Pages 19~38
DOI : 10.9722/JGTE.2011.21.1.019
This study aims to apply a teaching-learning model using science oriented UCC created by students themselves(4C model) in a gifted students' project learning and investigate its effects in science-related affective property by gender in order to use UCC systematically in a gifted students' project learning course. After conducting of gifted students' using UCC project learning, We surveyed gifted students' recognition about it. Nonparametric test has done with the results of before and after science-related affective property tests of them. As results, gifted students took an active part in 'using UCC project learning'. Girls are more active and interested than boys whereas more boys felt a difficulty in creating UCC than girls. Girls' creativity was improved and anxiety about science was decreased whereas the results of boys were not statistically significant. Therefore, 'using UCC project learning' is more effective than tha of boys to girls.

Kim, Hee-Kyong ; Lee, Bong-Woo ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 21, issue 1, 2011, Pages 39~56
DOI : 10.9722/JGTE.2011.21.1.039
The purpose of this study was to analyze the characteristics of science gifted students who participated in science gifted activity using rainbow. For this purpose, the science gifted activity using rainbow was developed and applied to 23 seventh grade science gifted students. The results indicated that gifted students had various concepts and ideas of optics. For example, some gifted students thought that there was rainbowshaped light at the place of rainbow, and another considered the process of dispersion of light in a waterdrop would be same as the process of the dispersion in the prism. Also, various rainbow theories and scientific imagination of gifted students were found. For devising new rainbow, gifted students used two strategies, 'changing the features' and 'changing conditions'. In addition, we discussed effective methods of applying this activity and implications to science gifted education.

Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 21, issue 1, 2011, Pages 57~81
DOI : 10.9722/JGTE.2011.21.1.057
The purpose of this study was to explore the quality of life of musically talented students as measured by their external experiences (e.g., activities, companions) and internal experiences (e.g., flow, emotion). The participants in this study were 33 musically talented students (10 males, 23 females) aged 13 to 19. Study data were collected for 7 consecutive days using the Experience Sampling Method (ESM), which employs a cellular-phone as a signaling device. The results were as follows: First, in response to the 1625 random signals, musically talented students reported that 40.9% of their time was spent on productive activities. An additional 33.4% of time was used for maintenance activities and the rest of their time was spent on leisure/social activities. Also, musically talented students reported that 48.5% of their time was spent alone. When they were alone, they spent a lot of time engaging in productive activities (44.3%). Second, in order to measure the flow of their life, two methods were used. One used a 4-channel flow model (i.e. apathy, boredom, flow, anxiety) and the other used 8 dimensions and conditions of the flow experience (i.e. concentration, self-consciousness disappears, action and awareness merge, distorted sense of time, freedom from worry about failure, clear goals, immediate feedback, balance between challenges and skills). According to the former, when engaged in music-related activities, musically talented students usually reported flow (54.0%), while they felt apathy (41.3%) for daily routines activities. According to the latter method, musically talented students experienced flow for most productive activities, while they experienced flow least for maintenance activities. Emotional variables of ESF are comprised of 10 semantic scales (i.e. happy-sad, strong-weak, active-passive, sociablelonely, proud-ashamed, involved-detached, excited-bored, clear-confused, relaxed-worried, cooperative-competitive). Musically talented students reported experiencing the most positive emotion for social activities and experiencing the most negative emotion for maintenance activities. Results of this study assert that musically talented students had to trade off immediate enjoyment for developing their special gifts. They could not afford as much time for socializing with friends, and they had to spend more time alone compared to their peers without such gifts. Consequently, they were found to deprive themselves of the spontaneous good times that teenagers usually thrive on. They were helped in this respect by their autotelic personality traits, especially their strong need for achievement and endurance. The downside, however, is that the moment-to-moment quality of their moods suffered. The argument concerning musically talented students applies for all adolescents. The choices that talented students must make between immediate gratification and long-term development, and between solitude and companionship, are the same choices every young person must make, regardless of her or his level of talent. All of us have gifts that are potentially useful and worthy of being appreciated. But to develop these latent talents we must cultivate them, and this takes time and the investment of mental energy. The lifestyle that musically talented students develop can show us some of the choices all of us must make in order to cultivate our gifts.
Comparison of Self-Esteem in the Gifted & Ordinary Boys and Analyses of Psychosomatic Symptoms and Aggression according to Self-Esteem Patterns in the Gifted
Park, Hye-Won ; Ha, Jung-Yun ; Moon, Ji-Hye ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 21, issue 1, 2011, Pages 83~105
DOI : 10.9722/JGTE.2011.21.1.083
Explicit & implicit self-esteems were measured with 132(23 elementary & 109 middle school students) gifted & 282(29 elementary & 253 middle school students) ordinary students. Additional measures on psychosomatic symptoms & aggression were obtained with gifted students. Gifted boys reported higher ESE on most of subscales except the athletic self-esteem. However there was no difference in ISE between two groups. Self esteem types significantly predicted psychosomatic symptoms & aggression in the gifted. Especially the discrepancy between ESE & ISE was the most important predictor for both internalized & externalized behavior problems. The behavior problem ratings were higher in the self-esteem discrepant groups compared to the congruent groups. This study showed that the congruency between ESE & ISE is important from childhood and later studies need to find intervention strategies against the self-esteem discrepancy.

Han, Ki-Soon ; Lee, Jeong-Yong ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 21, issue 1, 2011, Pages 107~122
DOI : 10.9722/JGTE.2011.21.1.107
The purpose of this study is to explore the perception of the observation and nomination system for the identification of the gifted and to find out the importance and practice level perceived by the gifted education teachers using the concept mapping approach. For this, twelve gifted education teachers brainstormed and gathered ideas for the ideal ways of observation and nomination system and the gathered statements were solicited. Multidimensional scaling and hierarchical cluster analysis were also used. In addition, 112 gifted education teachers rated the importance of and the practice level for the suggested ideas of observation and nomination system. Results were as follows: First, 36 statements were solicited and as a result of concept mapping the suggested observation and nomination system were categorized as 'attainment of professionality', 'attainment of administrative support', 'attainment of fairness', and 'considering points for recommendation.' Second, there were significant differences between the perceived importance levels and the practice levels. Based on the results, imlications of the study were discussed in depth.
Girls Left Behind in Science Gifted Education?: Gender Differences in Science Affective Domains among Top 10% High Achievers in PISA 2006
Seo, Hae-Ae ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 21, issue 1, 2011, Pages 123~139
DOI : 10.9722/JGTE.2011.21.1.123
The research paid attention to the fact that top 10% high achievers of girls in high schools are not equally provided with opportunities for science gifted education in Korea. For this reason, the research examined gender differences in science achievement and science affective domain through employing PISA 2006 science achievement test and survey of science affective domains. The research subjects of 132 students as top 10% high achievers extracted from those 1,409 students who were nationwidely sampled and responded to the science achievement test and science affective domain survey in July 2008. The responses by 132 students of top 10% high achievers were analyzed. The findings revealed that there is no significant difference of science achievement and most items of science affective domain survey between girls and boys of top 10% population in high schools. Further, it was indicated that top 10% high achieving girls have interest, self-concept, self-efficacy, future job aspiration in science as high as boys. In conclusions, further attentions to provide more opportunities of science gifted education for girls are called for.

Kim, Yoo-Seon ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 21, issue 1, 2011, Pages 141~161
DOI : 10.9722/JGTE.2011.21.1.141
This study have an intention of identifying multiple intelligence aptitude, career tendency and career maturity of verbal writing gifted students. 60 verbal writing gifted students who have achieved success in the writing contest were collected for this study. The data was selected through survey MI instruments from the students. The results are summarized as follow. First, verbal writing gifted students' MI profiles were revealed that linguistic intelligence, musical intelligence were strong, and logicalmathematical intelligence was weak. Second, many verbal writing gifted students showed strong musical career aptitude and strong linguistic career aptitude but few writing gifted students showed strong logical-mathematical aptitude. It was revealed that logical-mathematical interest had significant relationship with logical-mathematical achievement in the p-value<.01. Third, there were many linguistic career tendency students & interpersonal career tendency students. But there was no naturalist career tendency student. Musical career tendency, naturalist career tendency showed big differences between strong career aptitude and career tendency. Fourth, career maturity of verbal writing gifted student was very high. The finding can be explained that most of them have characteristics of early career maturity. Parents, teachers, specialists have to provide career information matching strong aptitude and aptitude improving education matching career tendency to the verbal writing gifted students to choose their career successfully.

Park, Eun-I ; Hong, Hun-Gi ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 21, issue 1, 2011, Pages 163~174
DOI : 10.9722/JGTE.2011.21.1.163
As the scientific technology has produced complex problems that required value judgment, science-gifted students need the program for enhancing the critical thinking. Therefore, this study analyzed patterns of claims on scientific technology of the science-gifted for the development of argument program. The data were collected by 60 science-gifted students using writing and e-mail. The result showed that 29% of the participants provided only advantageous factors for their claims, whereas only 10% among the participants who provided both sides used pattern of 'rebuttal.' In addition, the students who fell into the patterns of 'alternative suggestion' and 'overly positive expectation on scientific technology' revealed positive recognition on scientific technology. These results highlight the need of argumentation program for science-gifted students that could be guideline for knowledge or argumentation, help awareness of limitation and role of scientific technology and lead to well-balanced judgment between positive effects and negative ones.
Analysis on Creative Thinking Leaning Between Scientifically Gifted Students and Normal Students
Chung, Duk-Ho ; Park, Seon-Ok ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 21, issue 1, 2011, Pages 175~191
DOI : 10.9722/JGTE.2011.21.1.175
This study is to investigate the creative thinking style and it's leaning that normal students and scientifically gifted students use mainly at processing information. Right Brain vs Left Brain Creativity Test(R/LCT) and Brain Preference Indicator(BPI) is taken to investigate the creative thinking style of normal students(N=144) and scientifically gifted students(N=97). In the R/LCT, the normal students responded that they prefer to use right-brain thinking rather than left-brain thinking. But the scientifically gifted students prefer to left-brain thinking. The normal students showed most preference for Holistic Processing of right side brain and they did most avoiding for Verbal Processing of left side brain. The scientifically gifted students showed most preference for Logical Processing of left side brain. And they did most avoiding for Random Processing of right side brain. There was a meaningful difference between left side brain preference group and right side brain preference group on Sequential, Symbolic, Logical, Verbal, Random, Intuitive, Fantasy-oriented Processing of normal Students. But the scientifically gifted students showed a meaningful difference in right side brain processing mainly. In other word, all the scientifically gifted students took an lean processing in Logical, Symbolic, Linear Processing, etc. In sum, the scientifically gifted students are unequal in at processing information against the normal students. So it is required more appropriate teaching-learning method based on the creative thinking style and it's leaning for effective gifted education.
