This study attempted to examine the significance of experience in the gifted class management. The participants of the this study were teachers of the science gifted classe in elementary school located in Seoul. The study was conducted in interviews with four teachers of the science gifted class that individually used their own gifted programs. The interviews were analyzed by applying a phenomenological method of analysis derived from Giorgi. Data collection focused on the feelings, thoughts, behaviors, and changes in life of the teachers of the gifted in order to analyze the experience of the research participants. As a result, 123 significant statements were deduced; based on these significant statements, 26 themes and 12 focal meanings were examined closely. Then, the focal meanings were combined to propose situated structural descriptions of the significance of experiences from the perspective of participants. At the same time, by integrating the situated structural descriptions of the individual participants, the experiences of the teachers of the science gifted class were organized as a general structural description. This study examined in depth the experiences of the teachers of the gifted who are the subjects of the gifted class management through a phenomenological method, and also attempted to examine what these teachers wanted on site and what their experiences with the gifted education meant to them. The implications in understanding the problems of the science gifted education in individual elementary schools and in improving the gifted class management were suggested.

Kwon, Min Jung ; Cho, Sun Hee ;
Journal of Gifted/Talented Education, volume 24, issue 6, 2014, Pages 961~974
DOI : 10.9722/JGTE.2014.24.6.961
We analyzed the relationship between the brain Dominance and the scientific creative problem solving utilizing propensity to target Science-Gifted Student (n=159). Brain dominance is divided into left upper brain (LUB), left lower brain (LLB), right lower brain (RLB), and right upper brain (RUB). Creative problem solving skill in science included validity, scientific characteristics, sophistication, originality, and fluency. Analysis of the results of this study showed a high frequency among the four types of the brain dominance is the highest score of LUB in science gifted group. This point was found that the tendency of the analytical and critical thinking that is characteristic of the LUB is strong scientific gifted group. When total sample was divided into high and low groups by scientific creative problem solving scores, in the analysis of the brain dominance score difference between the two groups of students who take advantage of the results of score RUB is compared to the high fluency group score higher than the low group found (p<0.05). The analysis of the correlation between brain dominance and scientific creative problem solving showed that originality and fluency had statistically significant correlation with RUB propensity score (p<0.05). This result suggests that the imaginative and challenging RUB propensity may be related to produce many and original ideas in scientific creative problem solving.

The purpose of the study is to explore the experiences and meaning of the AP (Advanced Placement) at the specialized school for the highly gifted through the in-depth interview with 39 college students who had graduated from the specialized schools with the AP experiences. It is expected that the AP will be expanded to the students at the Science High Schools from the year of 2015, however, there has been no study to examine the realities of the AP in-depth especially through the voices of the AP participants. Students have taken 8 required and/or selective courses as AP in average. Students usually start to take AP from the second year of the specialized school for the highly gifted, but some start from the first year through the placement test. Numbers of available AP courses vary by subjects, but relatively more courses open in the areas of math and physics. Students' opinions regarding the AP were quite positive. Specifically, the high quality of the AP class and energetic interaction between student and teacher compared to the college classes were preferred by the students. However, it was controversial whether C+ is enough for the pass condition of the AP. Students were using the shortened time by AP in diverse ways, such as early graduation, double majors, exchange students, individual researches, and so on. Most of all, they tried to search for their career interests through the AP experiences. In closing, the present study provides some advices and future directions for the better AP management, including the improvement of administrative system between schools for the gifted and the universities, and the expansion of the number of university which approves the AP system.

This study aims to measure intelligence (cognitive characteristics), self-esteem, mathematical attitudes, and scientific attitudes (affective characteristics) of gifted students from low-income families, and to identify the relationship among these variables. 147 students in the lower grades of elementary schools who were enrolled to university-based gifted education centers were participants of the study. The results showed that the percentile scores of each variable were 85% for intelligence, 75.6% for self-esteem, 73.3% for mathematical attitudes, and 71.3% for mathematical attitudes. There was no statistically significant relationship between intelligence and the affective characteristics (i.e., self-esteem, mathematical attitudes, and scientific attitudes), while statistically significant relationships were shown between self-esteem and mathematical attitudes (r=.448, p=.000), between self-esteem and scientific attitudes (r=.522, p=.000), and between mathematical attitudes and scientific attitudes (r=.448, p=.000). The results suggest that although the gifted students from low-income families show lower levels compared to other gifted student groups, their potential level of giftedness is considerably high, which calls for appropriate educational support systems designed for this population.

Problem posing is used to develop the creativity program and adaption for the gifted, and to screen the gifted students in the selection process. However existing creativity assessment factors(fluence, flexibility, originality) has been recognized to have it's limitation to assess the mathematical creativity. To improve the creativity assessment, we propose new set of assessment factors for mathematical creativity test through problem posing. For this study, we let 19 mathematically gifted students to pose two good mathematical problems for a limited time after solving a certain problem so called a reference problem. A week late, we let the subjects, pre-service teachers, and experts to evaluate the problems posed by the subjects, and leave the reasons for evaluating highest mark and lowest mark. With this date, we propose fluence, flexibility, originality, anti-similarity, complexity, elaboration as the set of mathematics creativity assessment factors.

The working concept of the disadvantaged gifted is meant by those who hardly can have a chance to develop one's own gifts because of the environmental conditions and factors. The main purpose of this study is to explore the inherent trait of the music giftedness, which is composed of musical ability, creativity, and task commitment. Grounded upon the phenomenal research, this study purposefully samples ten disadvantaged students who participated in the arts gifted camp hosted by Korean National Research Institute for the Gifted in Arts. Thus, it explores the inherent traits of the disadvantaged gifted by coding, segmenting, and analyzing the interview with ten disadvantaged, and the evaluation reports of the expert group. The inherent trait of music giftedness of the disadvantaged gifted is shown as this: the inherent trait of the disadvantaged gifted in music is closely interrelated with one's own concept of giftedness. Whereas they show the high motivation and task commitment, they are hardly observed to have the creativity in their musical activities and learning. Finally, this study give a proposition for the strategy to stimulate and improve the inherent trait of the disadvantaged gifted in music: the importance of parents education and parent screening, meta-cognitive skills, the leaning-based creativity education, and the significant role of intrapersonal catalyst.
