Brilliant Behaviors Checklist For Single Student Observations
Teachers and parents may use this form when observing one child at a time. It is a good initial screening tool to locate students who are likely to need differentiated learning experiences in their areas of strength. It is very important that the student’s strength or strengths be indicated on the form as well as the activity or activities during the observation(s). Some bright and gifted students have more than one strength. For these students, begin with the greatest strength for your first observations. Record more observations in additional areas of strength in different colors of ink on the same sheet.
This version feeds into the Teacher’s Guide for Selecting Differentiation Strategies (Chapter 4). The check-marks on this form may be transferred to the Guide by a teacher, support or resource-person, or a parent.
