Drawing on Giftedness: Understanding What It Means to Be an Engaged Gifted and Talented Elementary Student
McCormick, Kimberly M.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Indiana University
Research has found that a strong predictor of students' success is the ability to connect to their school and be actively engaged in their learning. Even with the vast empirical support for the positive effects of student engagement, one area that has not been investigated is the idea of student engagement with gifted and talented students; particularly when looking at the elementary grade levels. This concept is essential to understand because research also supports the idea that student engagement decreases with each grade level. Through the qualitative analysis of gifted and talented student drawings and interviews, this research shows support for increasing student engagement for these students and how this could be done in the current educational system.
