Kahveci, Nihat Gürel; Akgül, Savas
Gifted and Talented International, v29 n1-2 p79-91 2014
This study provides elementary gifted and talented students: Social Studies, Math, Turkish, Science, and Foreign Language courses in terms of differentiation, challenging activities and classroom climate. Research studies contend the significance of differentiation, challenging curriculum and instruction, suitable classroom climate to provide gifted and talented learners to develop their potential. Although gifted and talented education gets more attention in Turkey, there is limited research on gifted and talented students' views on their schooling. This study extends Gallagher et al. (1997) study through the analysis data collected by means of the Perceptions of Academic Lessons Questionnaire developed by the researchers in the Turkish context. A survey study design in this study allowed 370 elementary gifted students to present their views on schooling. Findings of the study demonstrated that there is a decreasing perception level of students as grade level increases. The results of the study reveal new questions that need to be addressed in the area of Gifted and Talented education in Turkey.
