This is a fascinating chronicle of the lives of academically talented and gifted adolescents living in a special residential public high school. The author, who lived as a resident in the school's dormitory, provides rare insights on how environment and potential talent interact inside a school to impact identity, talent, and advanced development. By exploring the special context of the school, this volume: shows how the combination of rigorous academics and living with other talented children can create a high energy environment that accelerates the pace of development, although many students may be unprepared to keep pace, they do; examines in-depth issues of equity and excellence, status, and identity; depicts a high school where equity and excellence co-exist and offers an explanation for this unusual phenomenon in American high schools; offers valuable information that can be applied to a variety of gifted and talented programs and other specialized learning environments; and exemplifies a distinctive dedication to qualitative research methods, setting a new standard for conducting such research.Life in the Fast Lane Laurence J.
