The Roeper Review
The Roeper Review was founded by George and Annemarie Roeper in 1978. Its mission is to publish thought-provoking, informative articles that deal with research, observation, experience, theory and practice as they relate to the growth, emotions, and education of gifted and talented learners and to the cultures in which they live. The quarterly, peer-reviewed journal is edited by Don Ambrose, professor of graduate education at Rider University. Both hard copy and online subscriptions are available from Routledge, an academic imprint of the Taylor and Francis Group. Subscriptions or individual articles may be purchased at Taylor & Francis Online.
Sponsoring Presentations and Workshops
The Roeper Institute sponsors periodic presentations/workshops on a variety of topics in the field of gifted education. Presenters have included members of the Roeper Review Editorial Advisory Board with subject matter specifically designed for different groups of attendees, including faculty, students, parents, and community educators. Recent presenters include noted gifted education experts Donald Ambrose, Jim Delisle, Stephen Schroeder-Davis, and Dr. Joyce VanTassel-Baska.
In honor of the Roeper School's 75th anniversary, The Roeper Institute and the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights at Wayne State University Law School co-sponsored A Matter of Equity, a day-long symposium for Detroit educators and policy-makers on identifying and educating underserved gifted children.
