Download (1597Kb)


    My diploma thesis is focused on population of socially disabled gifted underachievers in primary schools and the strategies to raise their abilities, their grades and to improve their interactions with social environment. These strategies can also be efficient in working with children who are not identified as gifted, but are facing problems within their social environment. A description of the strategies, their efficiency and use are presented. Some of them are, according to the results of the survey, are generally not well-known, but not any less effective. The empirical part of the thesis is dedicated to the research about the use of strategies for helping the above mentioned population by teachers of Slovenian elementary schools. I was also interested in how often they recognize socially disabled gifted underachievers, how they gained the knowledge for working with them and whether they felt competent for this kind of work. In the internet research 95 teachers filled the questionnaire completely. Only two answered that they could not understand the term socially disabled gifted underachiever; others wrote down their perception of the characteristics. The teachers want to gain more knowledge from this area, because they didn´t learn much about socially disabled gifted underachievers during their studies.
