3 Big Ideas

From this article, I came away with some big ideas about Gifted and Talented.

1. The definition for GT was created in 1972, however school districts are not required to use it.

2. Most learners do not look to the GT classmates as role models.

3. GT or not - all learners still develop socially and emotionally together.

2 Questions

1. What is a more accurate way to collect data on the actual percentage of GT learners in the USA?

2. What are all the different ways a learner can be identified as gifted?

1 Action

With the information I have learned, I will be more of an advocate for GT learners and educate others about what GT really is.
