Drama in education; Gifted children -- Identification;
Many scholars of gifted education have stated that early placement of children in gifted programs would provide opportunities for maximum development of potential and for nurturance of positive self concepts. Early identification and placement are also strongly suggested to help prevent underachievement (Karnes, 1988; Kitano, 1985a; and Van Tassel-Baska, 1988). Despite these needs, Karnes (1983) described very young gifted children as disadvantaged and underserved. More recently, the needs of young gifted children have become the subject of much discussion in the literature, and many educators have begun to address how to identify and serve this population (Karnes & Johnson, 1991 ).
