Meeting the Needs of the Gifted and Talented in a Mainstream Classroom Setting Data Analysis Chapter

… Meeting the Needs of the Gifted and Talented in a Mainstream Classroom Setting

Qualitative research

Does teacher instruction challenge the needs of the gifted and talented in a mainstream classroom?

Special needs instruction for low-performing students has become an increasingly important aspect of the modern national conversation on education, given the growing, evident need for additional support for students with autism, attention-deficit disorder, and ESL students. However, the presence of gifted and talented students at the other end of the differential learning spectrum is often forgotten. Because these students are not evidently being 'left behind' in the debate regarding standardized assessment and testing, their needs are often ignored. Teachers may assign some students more challenging work for 'extra credit' but the specific needs of the…. [read more]

Meeting the Needs of the Gifted and Talented in a Regular Classroom Introduction

… ¶ … Education to the Gifted in a Mainstream Setting

The basic premise behind American public education is the provision of an opportunity for the equal pursuit of educational growth for all students. Such a premise is intended to exist in spite of racial divides, socioeconomic imbalance, diverse intellectual potential and limited physical disability. And in an egalitarian interpretation, this suggests that all students, regardless of individual characteristics, are intended to be integrated into a fully socialized form of collective education. But this is an approach which stands in direct contrast with the needs of individual students, as we are learning today. It is a natural state of fact today that schools which exclusively serve the needs of the blind are widely available. Likewise, it…. [read more]

Pedagogic Model: Teaching Technology in Special Education Dissertation

… " (Dougiamas, 1998) Such trivial constructivism, though, is the bedrock from which Glaserfelds more radical constructivism springs. He continues to state that because knowledge is constructed by the learner, and because no two learners are the same, knowledge itself is not absolute. There is a degree to which knowledge is an illusion, and every individual constructs their own conception of reality which (while susceptible to the demands of "real" or normal reality) does not necessarily align with the normal paradigm. Constructivism does embrace this relativistic and existential approach to reality, but it also holds as a primary value the idea of constraint which enables the thinkers to participate in social interaction and mainstream reality. (Glasersfeld)

One interesting area of constructionist theory is…. [read more]

RTI Response to Intervention Term Paper

… In short, early childhood educators as a group may be more focused on basic skill development and more accustomed to flexible and responsive service delivery than their elementary school counterparts. Therefore, it seems possible that RTI would be more readily accepted in early childhood, as it likely represents less of a philosophical or pedagogical shift at the preschool level.

Principles of RTI

Four key principles that consistently appear in models of RTI include the procedure of (1) entire screening of students in the school to detect the ones who are at risk of low academic performance, (2) a school wide, multi-tiered approach to prevent such school failure, (3) continuous monitoring of progress (hereafter progress monitoring) to document a student's progress (or lack thereof) and to….

School Counseling and Improvement of Student Academic Achievement in Students With Special Needs Term Paper

… Counseling

School counselors play an important and not always acknowledged role in providing assistance to students, giving students someone to talk to, and offering direction for those experiencing difficulties in their academic careers. Counselor play a particular role for special needs children, whether those suffering from learning disabilities or from physical disabilities, or those with some other issue that prevents them from maintaining their focus in class. Numerous studies have been made to show the role that counselors can and do play and how the counselor can keep students focused on learning. Such studies detail the role of the counselor with students with different types of problems, always showing that the role of the counselor can be made more effective with the practical application of….

Leadership Skills Impact International Education Term Paper

… However, many people do not understand what leadership is and how it applies to the school environment. In their 1997 study of visionary companies, James Collins and Jerry Porras define leaders as people who "displayed high levels of persistence, overcame significant obstacles, attracted dedicated people, influenced groups of people toward the achievement of goals, and played key roles in guiding their companies through crucial episodes in their history."

This definition is very much in line with the definitions currently used for school leaders, although this definition has changed in recent years (Education Week, 2004). Until recent years, most research assumed that leadership did not have to come from the school principal (Riordan, 2003). The realization that improving instruction requires shifts in the behavior of school…. [read more]

Reading Strategies Impact on ELL ESL Students Capstone Project

… ¶ … Reading Strategies' Impact on ELL Students

Today, more than 2 million students from non-English-speaking backgrounds attend public school in the United States and their numbers are expected to triple by 2020. The research to date confirms that these students require support in their native languages as well as in English to achieve academic proficiency, but far too few English language learners (ELLs) are receiving the level of educational support that is required. In this environment, identifying improved strategies for facilitating English language acquisition represents a timely and valuable enterprise. There are a number of challenges that are involved, but the mandates are clear. The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, signed into law January 2002, placed renewed emphasis, urgency, and expectations on all…. [read more]

SAT General Information Under the Helping Hands Research Paper

… ¶ … SAT


Under the helping hands of school counselors, parents, and teachers, more than 1.2 million high school seniors took the Educational Testing Service's SAT in 2008 (Zemelman et al., 2008). ETS makes and administers the aptitude test for the College Board, a nationwide consortium of colleges and universities. But for all practical purposes, this is a monolithic SAT organization. Call it the ETS/College Board alliance. Besides the SAT, an additional one million seniors took its Iowa City cousin, the ACT college admissions test, produced by ACT Inc. In either case, students, parents, and counselors have been subjected to the relentless message that the tests (Blumer, 2004) although not infallible, of course; are good predictors of one's prospects for college success. That…. [read more]
