Providing Potentially Gifted Kindergarten Students with Appropriate Enrichment Activities for Classroom Use with Minimal Guidance.
Dohrn, Elizabeth A.
The practicum report describes an effort to provide enrichment materials for kindergarten students whom classroom teachers identified as potential entrants for the gifted program. Two miniworkshops were conducted to familiarize teachers with identification and enrichment activities. Targeted students received enrichment attention both within and outside the class via cross-age tutors, self-instructional materials, and interest centers. The goals of increasing kindergarten referrals to the gifted program and of heightening the awareness of kindergarten teachers regarding the gifted/talented/creative child and the gifted program were met. In addition, positive changes were noted in the abilities of targeted students participating in enrichment activities. Appendixes include checklists of creativity and giftedness characteristics, psychological referral forms, student evaluation checklist and teacher information awareness checklist, workshop materials, and photocopies of enrichment activity cards.
