Gifted Achievement and Underachievement in the Classroom
Rafidi, Mark
English in Australia, v43 n2 p63-65 2008
A wonderful thing about teaching is that you encounter all sorts of students. This article takes a closer look at gifted students in my classroom. It explores a case where a student underachieved and another instance where a few gifted students were engaged in learning through a differentiated curriculum. This article briefly outlines their learning pathways using Bloom's Taxonomy and highlights why we should be concerned with gifted learners.
