Abstract: The purpose of this study was to construct a conceptual model for the education of the gifted that would function both analytically and programmatically and also serve as an alternative to technical-instrumental models for the gifted. The process of model-building was divided into three component parts: assumptions, concepts, and relationships. Three basic assumptions were made about education for the gifted: 1) Hostility towards giftedness is often exercised by administrators, teachers, and peers. 2) The gifted need special programs that are implemented by special teachers. 3) The gifted need a sense of community to help them achieve fully.
