NAGC Position Statements & White Papers
Position Statements and White Papers help clarify issues in gifted and talented education and set NAGC's position on these issues.
The Conceptual Foundations Network believes that a strong conceptual and theoretical framework is needed for the field of gifted education to advance. Their mission is to focus on theory; concepts of giftedness; philosophical foundations; trends, issues, and future directions for the field; historical perspectives; and perspectives from outside the field in order to provide the longitudinal, conceptual, and structural frame from which the field can build appropriate curriculum, identify students, and do research. Specifically, the Network:
Jennifer Riedl Cross, Chair
Stephen Schroth, Chair Elect
The Conceptual Foundation Network has an ongoing project of creating video interviews of the leaders in gifted education. It began as the Legacy Series and has blossomed into the Legacy Archive Project. These videos create a permanent record in image and voice, of prominent individuals who have devoted their energy and professional talents to enhancing the lives of our nation's most able learners.
