This 17-minute TED Talk is an excellent resource to use in Unit 11 of AP Psych (Testing & Individual Differences). As a teacher, I realize that sometimes the classroom is not going to display or show their talents and gifts. This is a great talk to get them discussing what needs to happen in order for us to improve our educational system.
There are 12 questions on the worksheet and there are a few questions that require them to come up with solutions or share their thoughts on their own individual skills/talents. I have included an answer key for your convenience.
The activity could be sent home as homework or could be completed in class and then used to start a conversation about their talents/skills/thoughts on how to better meet their educational needs.
