Aldona Malyska, Malgorzata Stanczak, Pawel Piotrowski

Abstract


This study discusses some part of the survey results which was realized among teachers working in various types of polish schools. The research is concerned with the manners by which the teachers understand notion such as ―gifted students‖, and their experiences in pedagogical work with pupils, which can be named as ―talented‖ and also their opinions about such students (especially the question of features of gifted pupils, which are perceived and valuated by the teachers).

At the same time, the teachers gave less value to such abilities of their pupils, which can be defined as creative and of a special talent.
