Motivation of Academically Gifted Students
Rush, Emily
Online Submission
The purpose of this study is to describe the impact of implementing different strategies on fifth grade academically gifted students in order to motivate them to perform to their full potential. My research project is based on the motivation of gifted students in the general education classroom. I will study eight academically gifted fifth grade students from my classroom located in a public school in Michigan. There are four female and four male subjects. All students in this study were identified as academically gifted after performing above the 99th percentile during intelligence testing. The students are capable of high level performance, but are performing at various levels. Throughout this study, I collected and examined student and parent questionnaires, interviewed previous teachers, observed the students and analyzed student scores. After analyzing all the data, I determined the use of technology, personal interests, and providing multiple choices for assignments will increase the motivation of gifted students in the general education classroom. The following are appended: (1) data collection matrix; (2) Student Interest Questionnaire; (3) Parent Survey; (4) Teacher Interview; (5) Classroom Observation; (6) Weekly Student Advisory Checklist; (7) Student Survey; (8) Student Performance Series Score Data Collection; and (9) Student Reflection.
