Students are required to analyse a case study of a student with special gifts and/or talents and develop an evidence-based individual education adjustment plan. Evidence is required of the graduate’s reasoning for the overall plan, for the selection of teaching and learning approaches, strategies and resources, and for the activation of an appropriate support network within the school community.
Purpose of Assignment: The assignment provides an opportunity for students to apply their theoretical understanding of giftedness, contextual and family influences, and other relevant issues through a case study of a gifted learner.
Please refer to attached rubric and follow as assignment is matched strictly to this rubric. I have also included some references which would be great if they can be included.
