  • 14. U.S. D.O.E Definition
    Children and youth with outstanding talent perform or show the potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment. These children and youth exhibit high performance capability in intellectual, creative, and/or artistic areas, possess an unusual leadership capacity, or excel in specific academic fields. They require services of activities not ordinarily provided by the schools. Outstanding talents are present in children and youth from all cultural groups, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor (Department of Education, 1993).

    California
    Connecticut
    North Carolina
  • 17. State Definitions
    Why do you think CA provides the districts with choices for identification categories?
  • 18. Definition
    DANGER!
    If a definition to narrow, identification methods may discriminate against low SES, minority, disabled, underachieving, and females
  • 19.
  • 20. Renzulli’sDear Mr. & Mrs. Copernicus
    A study conducted by the American College Testing (ACT) Program titled, Varieties of Accomplishment After College: Perspectives on the Meaning of Academic Talent (Munday & Davis, 1974), resulted in the following conclusion:
  • 21. The adult accomplishments were found to be uncorrelated with academic talent, including test scores, high school grades, and college grades. However, the adult accomplishments were related to comparable high school non-academic (extra curricular) accomplishments. This suggests that there are many kinds of talents related to later success which might be identified and nurtured by educational institutions (abstract).

  • 54. Your Mission…
  • 55. Your Mission…
    • Does your state have a definition of gifted/talented?
    • 56. Is your district required to follow the state definition?
    • 57. What are the identification guidelines for your district? Are the guidelines provided by the state?
  • Identification Considerations
    There is no perfect identification system!
    Match identification procedures to the services provided
    Identification does not determine if a student is “gifted” or “not gifted”
    It selects students who would benefit from supplementary services
  • 58. Identification Considerations
    High performance vs. high potential
    High potential students may require different kinds of programming options than high performing students
    Establish local norms
    Use grade level, similarity of learning opportunities & background characteristics rather than national norms
  • 59. Identification Considerations
    Target specific behaviors and potentials
    Avoid generic labels
    Moderately gifted
    Highly gifted
    Label the services, not the students
  • 60. Identification Procedures Answer
    Who are the gifted and talented students?
    Why are we striving to identify them?
    How do we find them?
  • 61. Identification Procedures Answer
    What are the most appropriate tools for identifying students’ gifts and talents?
    How are data from various tools analyzed and interpreted?
    Who is responsible for identifying students’ gifts and talents?
  • 62. Identification Procedures Should:
    Make logical direct statements about how and where to start the process of screening
    Be public
    Be provided in multiple languages
    reflect the dominant student and parent populations
    Reflect the student population and demographics of the district
  • 63. Identification Procedures Should:
    Reflect students’ needs
    Reflect the definition of giftedness selected by state or local educators
    Be defensible and inclusive
    Include students
    with disabilities
    who are English language learners
    economically disadvantaged
  • 64. Identification Procedures Should:
    Check assessment tools for potential bias
    Be flexible
    Be communicated
    teachers
    parents
    administrators
    students
    Be updated at regular intervals to reflect changing demographics
  • 65. 3 Things to Avoid
    Pitting parents of advantaged children against parents of disadvantaged children
    Leading people to believe that any one instrument is the answer to identification
    Proliferating the amount of paperwork
  • 66. Don’t go! I’m sure page 3 of Billy’s Gifted Matrix Checklist No. 5.3 (a) is in here somewhere.

    What organizational model(s) does your school use?
    How do you group kids and move them around?

    What pedagogical model(s) guides your school’s work?
    What you do with kids within any grouping or organizational pattern. (e.g. Johns Hopkins, Mentor Connection, SEM)
