Neşe Kutlu Abu, Çiğdem Akkanat, Murat Gökdere.

Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate classroom teachers’ views about the education of gifted students in regular classrooms. The sample of the study is composed of ten prima-ry school teachers working in the city of Amasya and had gifted students in their clas-ses. In the present study, phenomenological research design was used. Data was collected through semi-structured interviews and ana-lyzed descriptively in the QSR N-Vivo package program. The findings showed that teachers did not believe a need for differentiating cur-riculum for gifted students; rather they ex-pressed that regular curriculum was enough for gifted students. Based on the findings, it is clear that teachers need training both on the need of differentiated education for gifted stu-dents and strategies and approaches about how to educate gifted students. Teachers’ atti-tudes towards gifted students in regular class-rooms should be investigated so that teachers’ unsupportive beliefs about differentiation for gifted students also influence their attitudes towards gifted students.

Key words: gifted students, regular classroom, teacher perceptions
