Storyboard Text

  • To be in a gifted program means that students in the program show evidence of high performance in areas such as intellectual, creative, artistic, leadership capacity, or specific academic fields, and who require services   
  • Gifted students tend to finish their work quicker than others. When a gifted child isn't challenged, they tend to get bored and act out. To direct them away from that, teachers can find other gifted students and encourage them to work together.
  • Something teachers should never do with a gifted student is make the student do busy work or become a teachers assistant. It's an insult to their intelligence. Also remember that not all gifted students are gifted in every subject. Don't expect them to be.
  • Some accommodations  for gifted students include, but are not limited to, the following:  Allowing them to make their own learning goals and provide them with the tools to reach those goals, allowing them to take an assessment before a unit to see what they already know, and allowing flexible seating arrangements.
  • There are 6 types of gifted students; the successful, the at-risk or drop-out, the autonomous, the double-labeled, the challenging, and the underground
  • The successful: Most likely to be identified, eager to impress, and usually have no behavioral problems.  The at-risk or drop-out: Not identified until very late in their schooling, and they're at angry at themselves and adults because the system has never met their academic needs.  The challenging:Harder to identify, incredibly creative, act out, more likely to get into drugs or alcohol and drop out. The double-labeled: These students are gifted and also have some other type of disability. Usually seen as average and are put into remedial programs because their needs haven't been met. Almost never identified.  The underground: Usually middle school girls who just want to fit and being pushed by parents and teachers often worsen their bad behavior.  the Autonomous: Successful, well-respected, and independent. These types make new opportunities for themselves creatively. They know how to work the system.  THE END
