Balanced research and practice
The structural framework of Renzulli’s schoolwide model (SEM, Renzulli and Reis, 1985; 1997) involves the entire school organization and all its protagonists in strengthening the gifted pupil. SEM is designed to achieve three objectives: 1. develop talents in all students; 2. provide a wide range of enrichment experiences; 3. Provide meaningful learning experiences. Starting from the observation of the characteristics of a gifted student, this study presents the specific and differentiated enrichment activity for a primary school in the subject of Math based on the Anderson and Krathwohl Taxonomy (2001). The description of the activity is part of the Italian version of the Renzulli scale, which provides specific guidelines for teachers that want to support gifted students at school in a mainstream and inclusive context after their identification.
