STUDENT WORK SAMPLES

All student work posted with permission; authors are noted (unless they choose to remain anonymous) and authors retain the rights to their work.
Providing examples of student projects is an opportunity for to broaden the community of scholars engaging in the reach of this work. It offers an opportunity for instructors other than myself to listen to student voices, it acknowledges significant student labor (I strive to support my students, but I never said my courses were easy), and it provides for the co-construction of meaning.

For more information about "creative product of your choice", check out my blog post here

Whenever possible, I ask for flexibility and creativity in work samples. While I do assign papers from time to time, and accept papers when writing is my students' preferred expression style, or perhaps their comfort zone, I relish the creative products that I have the pleasure to read, watch, listen to, and/or experience.


Some assignments are already published to the web by the students; for these, I have shared links to their sites.


On some assignments, I may ask for a blanket "please indicate whether or not you give permission to post", such as assigned podcasts. Other times, I ask students individually for their permission to share their work on this site- and with a broader audience. Posted work is with the student/author's permission, and they retain the ownership of their work.

Assignments submitted as podcasts with approval for public upload.

Some podcasts are in the media player below.

Others are provided as hyperlinks:

A DIFFERENT KIND OF FINAL EXAM

Students could create anything for GIFT 4000/6000 as long as they met 3 criteria:

  • Show a level of understanding/growth in all 6 modules (show me what you know!)

  • Describe areas of need/question that you still have (this doesn't need to be in all areas, but it can be).

  • Show (or describe, or make connections... in some way) how these areas fit together to give us a full understanding of the diverse gifted learner in a way that a surface level or singular definition of giftedness would not.
