Gifted Ideas. A Resource Guide for Teachers with Gifted Students. #5 of a Series.
Steinbach, Trevor T.
Characteristics of the gifted and ideas for working effectively with gifted students are presented in this guide for teachers. A list of behavioral traits exhibited by gifted students precedes a discussion of the myth that gifted individuals can be expected to perform perfectly in all areas of endeavor. Included in a discussion of learning characteristics are ways teachers can plan the learning environment and develop good student-teacher relationships. Seven suggestions for adapting instruction for the gifted child are listed. A student interest survey is included which will help the teacher plan for individual student needs. The survey, in the form of a checklist for the student, lists activities in the categories of writing, reading, science, studying, dramatics, music, mathematics, art, hobbies, and sports. (JH)
