Tan, L. S., & Lim, T. K. (1996, November). Gifted students’ evaluation of themselves as critical and independent thinkers. Paper presented at the ERA-AARE Joint Conference, Singapore.
The Chinese High School pull-out Gifted Education Programme is now in
its fourth year with 25 sec 4 boys, 21 sec 3 boys, 21 sec 2 boys and 31
sec 1 boys. Currently in the programme, the curriculum for Mathematics,
Science and Computer Studies have been differentiated to promote
thinking skills, self-discovery and independent learning. These
learning goals are further enhanced under the Mentor Link programme in
an individualized manner to suit personal learning needs and interests.
In doing their projects, the boys are solving real life problems that
sought to sharpen their learning skills and thinking skills. To
determine how much the gifted programme has helped the boys become
critical and independent learners, at the end of last year, 52 boys
responded a questionnaire on the following variables: creative
thinking, critical thinking, self acceptance, independence, social
acceptance, commitment and evaluative thinking. This paper will focus
on how the boys viewed themselves as critical and independent thinkers.
The results will also help to fine tune the programme.
