Through Gagne's DMGT and expectancy-value-theory, this qualitative cross-case study explores gifted adolescent perspectives on motivation and fills a gap in a highly quantitative field. The unrestricted insights of gifted adolescents through the triangulation of multiple data collection methods led to new insights on how to maximize student engagement and achievement. Findings from this study broaden the scope and offer new insights on how to better meet the academic and motivational needs of gifted adolescents through the formatting of lesson development, specific teacher-student interactions, and an awareness of how to increase students' valuation of assignments to increase sustained effort. Learn more about research being conducted in gifted education in this short research presentation.
