CABRERA, Piedad. What should a teacher of talented students know and know how to do?: A proposal for initial training standards in talents' education. Estud. pedagóg. [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.2, pp. 43-59. ISSN 0718-0705. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07052011000200002.
This paper presents a qualitative investigation with the purpose of generating a proposal for standards in the teacher training process for the education of academically talented children. Four phases were conducted with the goal of obtaining the 'know' and 'know how to do' in the education of professionals in talented education. The results suggest that these knowledge's can be grouped in eight standards: Foundations, characteristics of gifted students and their context, notions of curriculum, assessment system, instructional strategies, identification process, professional role and collaborative work. We hold the discussion, at a national and Latin-American level, of the implications of having training standards in this particular field of education.
