Reading and Exploring Gifted Education Press Quarterly: A Historical Perspective

During the spring and summer months of 2005 we updated the Gifted Education Press Quarterly Web Site so that it contains all previous issues back to April 1987 (Volume 1, Number 1). The information contained in the current and previous issues provides a vast and comprehensive resource for learning about the trials and tribulations of the gifted education field during the last twenty-seven years. I believe this collection of all previous issues of Gifted Education Press Quarterly contains an intellectually rich historical coverage of the major issues, ideas and resources in the gifted education field during this period. These documents can be used by teachers, graduate students, professors and parents for the  in-depth study of specific topics and issues. The well-written articles are by experienced educators of the gifted.

By re-reading many of these previous articles, I have observed that those published ten or more years ago still have fresh ideas and recommendations applicable to today’s gifted education problems and programs. I have also noticed that the gifted education field has been in constant turmoil during this period of time with the same old budget reductions and threats of impending elimination. But by some miracle and lots of persistence, educators and parents of the gifted have withstood these constant onslaughts by politicians, and state and local school boards. They have survived and continued to support the needs of gifted children.

The GEPQ articles from previous years are a rich source of information written by educational leaders such as Susan Winebrenner, Howard Gardner, Joseph Renzulli, Ellen Winner, Joan Smutny, Virgil S. Ward, John Feldhusen, Michael Walters, Jerry Flack, Linda Silverman, James Delisle, Jack Naglieri, James Webb, E. Paul Torrance and Karen Rogers. Teachers and administrators as well as parents have contributed insightful articles through the years on such topics as mentoring, cluster grouping, cooperative learning, reading programs, homeschooling, coercive egalitarianism, multiple intelligences, bibliotherapy, differential education, humanities education, outcomes based education, interdisciplinary learning, content based knowledge, leadership, sensibility, science and mathematics education, teaching Shakespeare, undersea exploration, identifying and educating gifted minority students, identifying and educating young gifted children, and using technology to educate the gifted. Their articles still have relevance to today’s problems of identifying and educating the gifted. In addition, the extensive humanities essays and book reviews discuss great authors and poets who should be studied by gifted students and their teachers.
