The Picasso in Your Classroom: How to Meet the Needs of Talented Artists in Elementary School
Wilson, Hope E.
Gifted Child Today, v32 n1 p36-41 Win 2009
Cassidy, a talented artist in my third-grade classroom, struggled with classroom assignments. It's not that she wasn't capable of high-level work, but tasks such as spelling tests, arithmetic practice, and test preparation worksheets were making for a very unhappy child. Cassidy was consistently eager to participate in learning activities that had a visual arts component and would demonstrate focus and attention to detail, but her reading and math assignments were not completed with nearly the same care and proficiency. Her hasty work often included many incorrect answers and illegible writing, that is, if she would even complete the assignment at all. (Contains 2 tables.)
