We are pleased to announce the winners of the annual Journal for the Education of the Gifted Paper of the Year. Dr. William T. Allen and Dr. Scott L. Hunsaker, coauthors of Teacher Conceptions, Curriculum Ideologies, and Adaptations to Linear Change in River School District: Implications for the Gifted (Volume 39 , Issue 3), are the recipients of this year’s award.
The Journal for the Education of the Gifted (JEG) has published high-quality manuscripts for four decades. It is produced in a partnership between The Association for the Gifted (TAG) of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and SAGE Publications. In 2014, the TAG Board of Directors voted to award a JEG Paper of the Year.
The JEG Paper of the Year was selected from the previous year’s published manuscripts (within the same volume). TAG Board members provided nominations for consideration for the JEG Paper of the Year. After receiving the nominations, the JEG Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor selected the top nomination. The JEG Paper of the Year was selected based on three criteria: relevance and contribution to the literature, timeliness and innovation, and research methodology.
The authors received plaques and a check for $500. The plaques and the monetary award are sponsored by the Center for Gifted Education at William & Mary.
