The paper summarizes both articles and provides a quotation from them. The paper also highlights the most salient point of the articles and relates the author's personal reflections on both articles.
From the Paper:"Gifted children are often talked about in educational circles - but how do we actually define gifted children? The article "Giftedness and the gifted: What's it all about?" offers a range of answers to that question. While the sheer breadth of the range may initially seem a little daunting, it is possible to discern sufficient commonalities that the varying definitions seem to hang together, casting light one upon the other. In addition, the checklist of general characteristics offers a quick reference for the busy teacher to identify gifted children in the classroom. This is a pragmatic article and a pragmatic approach, recommending for example that teachers do not become bogged down in the concept of intelligence. Finally, there is a useful section on the use of words that are sometimes associated with giftedness. This article shows that some of these are useful, and some are not. All in all, this is a useful article for both teachers and parents."
