According to the ministry, ET-children should experience suitable learning environments that support their cognitive abilities, promote their personality development and strengthens teamwork and social skills. The ministry provides guidelines for the selection processes and general rules and aims as a kind of curriculum for ET classes Ministry for Education, Science, Youth and Culture of the State Rhineland-Palatinate, These include a general agenda about the structure and the course of a day that the participating schools should follow see Table 1.
For example, the ET curriculum requires that children learn an additional foreign language that is not part of the traditional school curriculum, such as Russian or Japanese.
What language this will be is, however, the choice of the ET school. Each ET school forms a team of experts that is responsible for the local implementation and organization of the ET program and the diagnostic selection process. This ET team consists of teachers that were previously trained to meet the purpose of the program and to recognize and foster an active, creative, and inquisitive thinking attitude among the gifted children.
Daily structure of the Entdeckertag Program. In Germany, every child receives free education, which is of high quality, but mainly uses a traditional teacher-directed lesson format.
In contrast to this traditional schooling, the ET program aims to offer a variety of more self-directed learning opportunities. The child should be able to structure the gathered information and present it to classmates and parents as a poster, including pictures and text, or as a power point presentation. During the research phase, children should have the opportunity to discuss issues about their topic with other children in a plenary meeting in order to get comments and suggestions Baudson, In addition to the project work, children can work on brainteasers and applied science problems.
Moreover, sports and arts are included in the curriculum in order to promote an integrated educational approach Emrich et al. These include reading and writing tasks, puzzles and arithmetic problems. Gifted children might feel bored during their normal classes because they usually already have a rich knowledge on many topics. Thus, the work packages are helpful in providing continuous challenges to these children.
Moreover, these packages help to establish a bridge between both learning environments normal class and ET class, as the child takes the work packages back to traditional school and works on them after finishing regular activities.
The teacher can also use this supplemental material as a challenge for children who are not in the ET program. Thus, the work packages help teachers to offer challenging learning activities to all children and therefore enriches future teaching in normal classes independent from the ET program Emrich et al.
The selection process is carried out by the ET team of each school. Next, parents would be asked to complete a parental questionnaire and the teacher would be asked to complete a screening questionnaire about the child under consideration. Both questionnaires include a checklist and a set of open questions about behavioral and motivational aspects of the child.
The parental questionnaire also includes questions about early cognitive development and asks for proof of extraordinary cognitive performances e. During this interview, the child is asked to perform some challenging tasks in the areas of language, mathematics and logical thinking. These tasks require spatial thinking, text comprehension, memory, reasoning, conceptual thinking and number processing skills.
Within the interview the number and type of tasks given is attuned to the performance of the child. The Present ET Sample The present study was conducted in a school which in began participating in the ET program for gifted children in the city of Kaiserslautern a major city in the German federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate and neighboring communities.
At this particular school, the ET took place Wednesdays, from 8 am to 4 pm. The school provided lunch, drinks, and fruits and vegetables as snacks for all participating children throughout the day. The children were divided into two groups: Group 1, first and second graders, and Group 2, third and fourth graders, i. The local implementation and organization of the ET program and the daily schedule followed the guidelines and general rules given by the ministry for daily schedule see Table 2.
After, there was an open debate on a curriculum-related topic chosen by the teachers or the children. Hosted School daily schedule. Thereafter, children were divided into the two groups.
The Russian lessons were held by a native speaker in the classic teacher-directed lesson format, with a focus on grammar and translation. In the research projects, using the internet, each child investigated a self-chosen topic of interest, and reported results. Next, there was reading and playing time, in which all children mingled again. At this moment, children had the opportunity to immerse themselves in a book of their choice, or they could play with brain- and strategy games, such as Rush Hour, Chocolate fix, Blokus, or others.
After lunch and some sports activities, there was time for scientific experimentation.
In this time, with all children present, some experiments were performed with the aim to raise their curiosity and interest in science. Participants From the hosting primary school, a sample of children from Grade 1 to Grade 4, between the ages of 6 and 10 years old, was tested. The ethical, formal, and legal standards of the study were approved by the Aufsichts- und Dienstleistungsdirektion Trier ADD, a federal state institution responsible for approving studies conducted in public school.
The study was conducted in accordance with the recommendations of The German Society of Psychology after receiving written informed consent from the parents in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki. Participants were divided according to two general cohorts: Intervention group IG and control group CG.
This means, for each IG child, a control child attending a traditional school class at the same ET school, of the same gender, grade, and close to identical test scores was chosen. Thus, there were 48 participants in total. Participants are asked to complete the pattern by finding the one correct figure from six or eight possible solution options given below the matrix.
The maximum score is 60 points, since each item is fixed as pass or fail. The items are, at first, easy and simple but become increasingly more difficult within and across sets, requiring higher levels of cognitive abilities to encode and analyze information Raven, The individual test processing time and the increasing complexity of the SPM items are functional in assessing the extent of clear thinking Heller et al. The SPM was intended to capture the different levels of cognitive ability associated with intelligent performance in as many age groups as possible, regardless of education, nationality, or health condition Heller et al.
Raven intended to develop a test that would be theoretically relevant, easy to administer, clear to interpret, and could be administered to individuals of different ages and socio-economic backgrounds Raven, Normally, the SPM is used from 6 years onward and all candidates have the same set of tasks in the same order Heller et al. Creative Reasoning Task CRT The CRT is a diagnostic device which measures intelligence and creativity operating intertwined in an ill-defined problem space in contrast to intelligence tests which measure intelligence the traditional way; operating in well-defined problem space, as SPM; Jaarsveld et al.
The CRT involves generating components and relations which connect these components, and thus yields a cognitive thinking process in which both intelligent and creative abilities intertwine Jaarsveld et al. According to the instruction, the matrix must be solvable and as inventive and difficult as possible.
The figure that completes the matrix should be drawn within the matrix in the outlined square in the lower right corner.
Children were free in their choice of test form. The CRT contains two sub-scores: one for intelligence in an ill-defined problem space, i.
Due to research question and design, the latter was not used in the present study. CRT-R sub-score represents the logic and coherence in a pattern of components for a matrix that was created and it is evaluated by means of defined relations that can deliver up to raw points. However, as the CRT deals with ill-defined space problems, it is therefore impossible to fix a set of evaluation criteria for all possible solutions.
