Fandoms In The Lives Of Gifted Individuals With Imaginational Overexcitabilities, Jessica B. DeLallo 2017 University of Denver

Fandoms In The Lives Of Gifted Individuals With Imaginational Overexcitabilities, Jessica B. Delallo

TLS Doctoral Research Projects

Fandoms are communities, either officially or unofficially organized, that are dedicated to the love of a particular person, team, fictional series or character (Barton & Lampley, 2014). According to the Belonging theory (Gailliot & Baumeister, 2006), people yearn for belonging because it provides them with a sense of identity, self-esteem and self-worth. Gifted individuals often have unique social-emotional characteristics, such as overexcitabilities (OE), which set them apart from their non-gifted, non-OE counterparts because they actually experience life in a very different way (Neihart et al., 2002). The purpose of this study was to examine the role of fandoms in the lives of ...


Mathematics And Music: A Search For Correlation, Isaac Sarver 2017 The University of Akron

Newbery Award-Winning Books And Gifted Readers, Jennifer Dreyer

University of Iowa Honors Theses

This paper explores whether or not Newbery award-winning books, recognized for contributions to children’s literature in general, are likely to challenge and engage gifted readers. Children who demonstrate exceptional abilities in reading comprehension and perform beyond others their age need literature that will challenge their comprehension and enhance their advanced vocabulary. The Newbery books generally are written for upper elementary students and above, so the language of the texts themselves should align with the ability of a gifted reader. By examining the research related to what books are best for gifted readers, as well as the characteristics of books ...

Noticing The Extraordinary: Issues Related To Identifying The Gifted English Language Learners And Strategies For Educators To Support Them, Rebecca Hoover 2016 University of Northern Colorado

Noticing The Extraordinary: Issues Related To Identifying The Gifted English Language Learners And Strategies For Educators To Support Them, Rebecca Hoover

Ursidae: The Undergraduate Research Journal at the University of Northern Colorado

Language and cultural identity is not a measure of a child's academic ability, but the assumption that these constructs are related often exists among many people in our education system. Within the field of education, structural inequality and other factors have received considerable research and notice in recent years. Much of this research has been focused on the importance of multicultural education; however, English Language Learners (ELLs) have received minimal focus in Gifted and Talented Education (GATE). There is still substantial disproportional recognition of ELLs and GATE students. Compared to other children, ELLs are exceedingly underrepresented in GATE programming ...

Research Based Recommendation: Effective Parent Advocacy For Students Who Are Twice-Exceptional, Academically Gifted With Autism, Tara Kennedy

Senior Honors Theses

This thesis’s purpose is twofold. The first purpose is to present both information about what twice-exceptionality is and to make recommendations based on the existing research as to how parents or guardians can become more effective advocates and advocate for effective programming and services for their children who are twice-exceptional. While this thesis focuses on a specific subset of twice-exceptional students, those who are both gifted and have autism, a good deal of the material presented will be applicable to children who are gifted with learning disabilities. Effective parent advocacy looks the same across exceptionalities: producing the best educational ...


Professional School Counselors : Integral Stakeholders In The Recruitment, Retention, And Support Of African American, Latino, And Low-Income Students In Advanced Placement Programs., Damien Sweeney 2016 University of Louisville

Professional School Counselors : Integral Stakeholders In The Recruitment, Retention, And Support Of African American, Latino, And Low-Income Students In Advanced Placement Programs., Damien Sweeney

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Numerous studies have been conducted that show the importance of diversifying Advanced Placement Courses. However, Griffin and Steen (2011) state that: Despite a vast body of literature that stresses the importance of school counselors in addressing inequities that exists in schools, few articles provide concrete strategies that school counselors can infuse in their practice. More research is warranted because many school counselors face barriers when trying to implement systemic change in the schools. (p. 76) This qualitative research study is based on a collective phenomenological case study of six participants (five Professional School Counselors and one Director of School Counselors ...

Gifted With Asperger's Syndrome (Twice-Exceptional): The Difference Post-Graduate Certifications Held Make On Early Childhood Teachers' Knowledge, Terry Wright

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

Twice-exceptional students (Gifted with Asperger’s Syndrome) can be difficult for even the experienced teacher. Robust knowledge of Asperger’s Syndrome and Giftedness prepares teachers to meet the needs of these often-unidentified students. The purpose of this cross sectional survey design research was to study how post-graduate certifications held (dependent variable) affected early childhood teacher knowledge (independent variable) of Asperger’s Syndrome and Gifted/talented learner characteristics. From two large suburban school districts and small, private schools in Central Texas, 242 early childhood teachers (pre-k-second grade) participated in three online researcher created instruments entitled Teacher Knowledge of Asperger Characteristics, Teacher ...

Teaching In Circles: Learning To Harmonize As A Co-Teacher Of Gifted Education, Steve Haberlin

The Qualitative Report

In this autoethnography, I explored my daily challenges and frustrations working as a teacher of gifted students in inclusion classrooms in an elementary public school. Inquiring about how I coped with these challenges and eventually thrived in the position, I journaled weekly about my teaching experiences during a six-month period and collected e-mails to teachers and parents. I employed constant comparative analysis and five themes emerged: frustration, isolation, advocacy, collaboration, and influence. I discussed the themes within the greater social and cultural context, drawing upon psychology and educational theories.
