Although the academic achievements of students from East Asia are recognised internationally, there is a growing realisation that many of these students are underachieving, which is of increasing concern. Using the Actiotope Model of Giftedness to integrate a broad range of research, this book features a number of chapters written by internationally recognised scholars in a frank and lively discussion about the origins of giftedness in students from East Asia. Breaking new ground in understanding the complex interactions between a learner's environment, goals, intelligence and motivations in the development of their ever-expanding set of knowledge and skills, this model has been successfully used in school contexts in order to explain the achievement of mathematical excellence. Although written in the East-Asian context, the book will have profound effect on the way that giftedness is defined and understood in the West. It will guide future research and impact on the ways that educators identify and support gifted students. Chapters here also suggests possible reasons for the variability in the achievement of potentially gifted students and provide strategies to support these students. The book is essential reading for scholars, undergraduate and postgraduate students interested in the psychological and social basis of giftedness in students from East Asia.
