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.
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your peers. Discuss which of the traditional teaching strategies mentioned in the text (accelerated, compacting, enrichment, independent studies) you would use with that child. Be sure to justify your choice of strategy by using evidence from your peer’s initial response that leads you to believe this would be the best strategy for this child.
