Social and Emotional Development of Gifted Children (any four) to write about.

Each year the MacArthur Foundation awards prizes (big money) to notable contemporary achievers in virtually any domain of activity. The press refers to these as “genius awards,” and thus the recipients, besides becoming richer, become officially certified as geniuses.

Let’s say you are graduating at the end of this semester and are looking for a job. There is an advertisement in the want ads that the MacArthur Foundation is seeking someone to help select the next round of geniuses. You decide that you are a shoo-in for the job, but realize that your application must include a “position paper” in which you specify the criteria you would use to determine whether someone is deserving of the award.

What things would you look for? Any developmental experiences or personality traits? Any objective behaviors or social relationships? Please write a 3-5 page “position paper.”

You are expected to provide a brief summary, in your own words, of each assigned learning activity AND a summary of an additional journal article, chosen by you, that relates to a topic of your choice within each module.

You may find the journal articles through the ESC library. A peer review journal is one where any article being submitted that is the result of research or a theoretical proposal must go through a review process. This article is sent by the editors of the journal to 2-3 professionals (peers) with expertise in the same content area. Only if the article is considered to make a new and accurate contribution to the field will it be accepted for publication. You often hear about information from these articles, such as those from The New England Journal of Medicine through secondary sources, such as broadcasters or professionals; but to read the articles, you would need to access the journal. If the information is being presented orally in professionally regulated conferences, the proposal for the presentation must also go through a similar peer review process before being accepted. In this way a field polices itself by making sure as much as possible, that information that is treated as knowledge is accurate.
