Evidence underpinning this approach

The Canadian psychologist Dona Matthews coined the terms 'mystery' and 'mastery' frameworks to discriminate between two ways of unerstanding giftedness. This book is based on the 'mastery framework' principle as evidenced in the theories and work of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Reuven Feuerstein, Carol Dweck, Dona Matthews, Joe Renzulli, Guy Claxton and Robert Sternberg.
