Smarter than the teacher : A qualitative study on the view of giftedness and adaptations in the teaching of gifted children in two preschools (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine how adaptations in the teaching of gifted children of two preschools can be understood from the perspective of teachers, parents and children. The intent with the study was also to examine how the teachers worked to follow the curriculum and adapt the teaching, how the children could be affected by being seen as gifted and how the parents experienced the cooperation with the preschool regarding the teaching of their gifted children.

Through observations and interviews four themes were discovered – characteristics and to be seen, teacher's knowledge and education on giftedness, working methods and adaptations, and transition from preschool to school. The study’s results showed that the different perspectives differ, both between parents, educators and children, but also between the two preschools and their surrounding culture. The surrounding culture had a larger impact than expected.

The analysis, based on Stern’s theory of intersubjectivity and intercultural perspective, also showed the importance of gifted children to be seen as gifted and to interact with other gifted children.
