Chapter 7 of our text discusses the characteristics of gifted children and a variety of effective instructional methods. For this discussion, read the article Teaching young gifted children in the regular classroom. Next, respond to the following scenario:
Imagine you spent the day observing either a preschool, elementary, or secondary classroom. During your observation, one child exhibits behaviors typical of gifted children.
For your post, write a vignette that describes the child and explains why you believe this child may be gifted. Your vignette should include:
The child’s name, age, and grade level
A brief description of the learning environment
At least three academic and/or and social characteristics the child displayed during your observation that makes you believe he/she may be gifted. Be sure to support your description with information from the “Characteristics of Gifted and Talented” section of Chapter 7 of your text as well as at least one outside scholarly resource.
