The Discovery of Talent, 1950

 File
Identifier: Coll-1310/3/1/2/32

Scope and Contents

Thomson argues that the talents of the individual should be discovered and encouraged, rather than quashed because they are not intellectual enough. He discusses the uses of examinations and intelligence testing in discovering talent, and the need for tests of non-verbal as well as verbal ability.

The speech is written on the back of minutes from the National Committee for the training of Teachers.
