"This book is a scholarly overview of the modern concepts, definitions, and theories of intellectual giftedness, and of past and current developments in the field of gifted education. The authors consider, in some detail, the roles of intelligence, creativity, and wisdom in giftedness and the interaction between culture and giftedness, as well as how giftedness can be understood in terms of a construct of developing expertise. The authors also review and discuss a set of key studies that address the issues of identification and education of children with intellectual gifts. This volume may be used as a summary overview of the field for educators, psychologists, social workers, and other professionals who serve intellectually gifted children and their families"--
L'acquisition explicite de nouveaux termes de vocabulaire de leur langue maternelle par des sujets adultes mécanismes de découverte, de rétention, et de récupération des mots et de leur signification by Linda Jarvin( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main aim of the present research is to reach a better understanding of adult learners' explicit vocabulary acquisition strategies in their mother-tongue. Previous research in the field led to a controversy on the relative usefulness of two vocabulary learning strategies: the keyword and the context methods. This debate highlights the importance of taking the different steps of vocabulary acquisition into account separately: discovery, comprehension, retention and recall. Three experimental studies explored the processes of word-meaning discovery and recall, with words presented either in context or with a definition. In the first case, subjects had to infer the meaning of the new words. The results show that learning with a definition yields higher short-term recall scores, whereas both learning situations are equivalent when recall is measured after a month. Our data also points at differential retention and retrieval processes depending on the learning situation

What makes the difference? Investigating trendsetters' motivations by Manuel Kieselmann( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current research examines the psychological motivations of consumers and gives new insights into the psychology of fashion opinion leaders and opinion seekers. Furthermore, we offer a first validation of the consumer's need for uniqueness scale in Europe with a mixed European sample, using explanatory factorial analysis. We investigate and relate the three concepts of attention to social comparison information, consumer's need for uniqueness and consumer innovativeness in the framework of fashion. Results are based on 106 subjects who participated in an online questionnaire. The main findings demonstrate that (1) attention to social comparison information was positively related to opinion seeking, while consumer's need for uniqueness was negatively related (2) opinion leadership is positively related to consumer's need for uniqueness, yet fully mediated by fashion innovativeness (3) the validation of the counterconformity motivation scale was successful - contributing to crosscultural authentication of the construct. The presentation of empirical work is followed by the study's design and a discussion about the importance and practicability of the recent findings. Finally, limitations as well as implications for future research in psychology and marketing are presented, in order to get a better understanding of consumer behavior and the role of consumption in people's expression of identity

There is More to Teaching than Instruction: Seven Strategies for Dealingwith the Social Side of Teaching. Publication Series No. 1 by Steven E Stemler( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this paper, the authors discuss three main ideas. First, they examine traditional approaches to teacher preparation, and argue that teacher-preparation programs currently tend to train teachers mostly on issues related to instruction. They propose that teacher-preparation programs would benefit from expanding their focus to include explicit instruction on practical skills for dealing with social interactions with others. Second, they outline a framework for developing practical skills in teachers that will prepare them to effectively deal with parents, administrators, students, and other teachers. Third, they discuss how these practical skills can be measured. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)

Dynamic Instruction for and Assessment of Developing Expertise in Four Ethnic Groups by Robert J Sternberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The goal of this research project was to investigate the use of dynamic assessment to increase equity, fairness, and accuracy in the testing of abilities and achievement. Dynamic tests have been found to reveal developing expertise in underrepresented minorities around the world that is not revealed by conventional static tests. The gender-balanced fourth grade participants were divided into three main groups: Experimental, Irrelevant Treatment Control and No Treatment Control group. We sampled students from four ethnic groups: European American, Asian American, African American, and Hispanic American. All students were given instruction and/or dynamic assessments (either individually or group administered) nurturing (instruction) and measuring (assessment) their developing expertise in mathematics. The data collected from participating students and teachers show that (a) it is possible to develop dynamic assessments that can be used to asses groups of and individual students in a regular classroom setting, (b) such dynamic assessments with a process oriented (rather than a filler) activity between post tests tends to lead to higher student achievement, and (c) dynamic instruction tends to reduce the achievement gap between minority and non-minority students. The appendix contains : (1) The Learner's Profile Scoring Matrix. (Contains 10 tables and 7 figures.)
