Finding the Gifted: Increasing Screening Efficiency and Serving Kids

Help me give my students opportunities to be screened for the gifted program in a more efficient way by providing us with an extra testing kit so both gifted teachers can screen students simultaneously.

My Students

My students are witty, charming, and love a good debate. I currently work with students who are identified as academically gifted.

These students are all unique, but share a common thread in making my day every single day.

I teach at a school where about half of the student population is eligible for free or reduced price school lunch. Our school also has a large population of diverse learners- with dual exceptionalities, second languages, and varying backgrounds. While this creates unique challenges in the classroom, working with these students and getting to know them as individuals comes with great reward.

My Project

As gifted teachers, my teaching partner and I spend part of the year trying to make sure that we have identified any students in regular classrooms that may be potentially gifted. One of the elements of this process is the use of Pearon's KBIT-2 assessment, a brief intelligence assessment that helps us determine who may be eligible for the program.

Despite having two gifted teachers and dozens of gifted students, we only have one testing kit.

The kits are expensive and we know school funds are better spent on other materials that benefit all of our students. But we also want to make sure that we are identifying and serving as many of our potentially gifted students as early as possible, so they get the most out of the enrichment program- and we need an extra kit to help us do that.
