Kurzbeschreibung

25. April 1997
In this fascinating book, Ellen Winner uncovers and explores nine myths about giftedness, and shows us what gifted children are really like.Using vivid case studies, Winner paints a complex picture of the gifted child. Here we meet David, a three-year-old who learned to read in two weeks; KyLee, a five-year-old who mastered on his own all of the math concepts expected by the end of elementary school; and Nadia, an autistic and retarded "savant" who nevertheless could draw like a Renaissance master.Winner uses her research with these and several other extraordinary children, as well as the latest biological and psychological evidence, to debunk the many myths about academic, musical, and artistic giftedness.Gifted Children also looks at the role played by schools in fostering exceptional abilities. Winner castigates schools for wasting resources on weak educational programs for the moderately gifted. Instead, she advocates elevating standards for all children, and focusing our resources for gifted education on those with extreme abilities--children who are left untouched by the kinds of minimal programs we have today.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Authoritative, thorough, and convincing 10. Februar 1998
Von P. Lozar
Format:Taschenbuch
This is the best-researched book on this subject that I've ever read (the bibliography is 1/4 of the book). While the author doesn't provide any revolutionary insights of her own, she's done a terrific job of summarizing current research on gifted children, debunking commonly held stereotypes about giftedness, and translating researchers' insights into practical advice. While her style is rather dry, the book is accessible and generally free of psychological jargon. The book is a gold mine for parents and teachers, and a benchmark for researchers into giftedness.
I was particularly struck by Winner's convincing data showing that gifted children's minds actually work differently from average children's; they're not just "more of the same." As a former gifted child who went through ten years of educational hell before finally hitting my stride in mid-high school, I think that this point can't be emphasized strongly enough. We're capable of growing up into swans; don't try to convince us that we're defective ducks!

4.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best I've read on the topic 14. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I have done extensive research on the topic of giftedness as I attempt, with varying degrees of success, to guide my own gifted child through the educational system.
I found the book to be well researched, informative, and interesting. My only complaint is that the author did not address the variance in scores between the old Standford Binet test and the newer version. The change between these two versions of the test means that there is little meaningful correlation between the scores of the sample population she frequency cites (who were tested many years ago) and the scores that can be obtained on the new version of the test. The new test has a much lower ceiling so that higher scores (150+) are much harder to obtain than they were previously. While this deviation would affect many aspects of her discussion it is not addressed.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good book, but not practical 13. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I enjoyed the book immensely, reading it in one sitting. While I'm glad it's in my library, this is not a book I have opened a second time.
I purchased seeking to research extreme intellect, but found it of little value in terms of practicality/applicability for raising a profoundly gifted child. The fact-based approach and research cites appeal to me, but there is little to assist in the day-to-day of raising and advocating for these kids. Further, there was too much emphasis on musical/artistic (creative) genius -- I realize this is one area of her specialization -- and not enough on "global" gifteness, rare as that may be.
