Transcript of Joseph Renzulli
Amanda White and Chelsey Wariner
You observed one person who can only use one foot and travel backwards while guiding another person who is blindfolded and cannot use their hands to feel where their going.
Do you think these people are gifted and talented?
Three-Ring Conception Theory
Greatest contribution to Educational Psychology research.
Popular view of giftedness for over 30 years.
Sets guidelines to identify students who are gifted and talented.
"There is an overlap and interaction between the general categories and specific traits. All traits don't need to be present in any individual or situation to produce a display of gifted behaviors.
It is for this reason that the three-ring conception of giftedness emphasizes the interaction among the clusters rather than any single cluster. It is also for this reason that I believe gifted behaviors take place in certain people (not all people), at all times not all the time), and under certain circumstances (not all circumstances.)"

Application of Theory to the Classroom
aBOVE aVERAGE abILITY
"Gifted behavior consists of behaviors that reflect an interaction among three basic clusters of human traits; these clusters being above average general and/or specific abilities, high levels of task commitment, and high levels of creativity. Gifted and talented children are those possessing or capable of developing this composite set of traits and applying them to any potentially valuable area of human performance. Children who manifest or are capable of developing an interaction among the three clusters require a wide variety of educational opportunities and services that are not ordinarily provided through regular instructional programs."
Definition of Gifted Behavior
Verbal & Numerical Reasoning
Ability to tune in
Open to criticism
Originality of thought
Willing to take risks
Sensitive to detail
Are the three-rings constant?
Are the rings of equal size?
They don't have to be equal in size, as long as the are interacting together to some degree.
Creativity and task commitment "come and go"
Individuals get burned out.
A person can't and shouldn't fully engage in these areas at the same time.
Different for everyone
