MENDONCA, Lurian Dionizio; CAPELLINI, Vera Lucia Messias Fialho  and  RODRIGUES, Olga Maria Piazentin Rolim. Enrichment activities experienced by students with high abilities/giftedness. Rev. Bras. Educ. [online]. 2022, vol.27, e270127.  Epub Dec 21, 2022. ISSN 1809-449X.

Students with high abilities/giftedness stand out for their superior intelligence or special talent in different areas of knowledge, requiring specialized care. Enrichment activities are educational alternatives planned to serve this public. The aim of this research was to describe the enrichment activities experienced by students with high abilities/giftedness, based on the reports of students themselves, their families, and teachers. Questionnaires and specific protocols were developed and applied for each group of informants. As a result, it was found that students attended few enrichment activities, most of which available in laboratories of a university. They often consisted of exploratory activities, without considering the students’ interest and abilities, not reaching type II and III enrichments, according to reports from all segments.

Keywords : high abilities/giftedness; enrichment activities; special education.
