Gifted & Talented Program Information
CHARACTERISTICS OF GT CHILDREN
GT students are identified so that appropriate interventions can be designed to develop an optimal match between learners’ strengths and abilities and educational opportunities. The process begins with observations of student characteristics and behaviors. The Hawai‘i State Definition of GT and the Renzulli Three-Ring Concept of Giftedness, the theoretical construct of giftedness upon which the State program is built, provide the focus for observations and directions for program development. These concepts and definitions serve as a basis for schools to understand giftedness and make decisions about programs and services for their GT students.
