The purpose of this research was to determine how the writing process of published authors would be accepted and utilized by gifted students. To increase the field of research regarding gifted students, research was completed in a gifted classroom. Data was gathered using multiple data points, including a belief survey, data from writing, final products, and classroom discussions. Results found that the majority of students produced more when utilizing the methods of published authors, although the work was not of finer quality. Students were also more positive about writing when using the published authors' methods. Keywords: gifted education, writing process
