Yeliz BOLAT [1]


The aim of this study is to identify metaphorical perceptions of the gifted students enrolled in Science and Art Center (BILSEM) towards the concepts of Social Studies course, Social Studies teacher, and BILSEM. In line with this aim, gifted students were asked to produce metaphors about the concepts of Social Studies course, Social Studies teacher and BILSEM. This study adopted a phenomenological approach, which is one of the qualitative research methods, and the data were collected through metaphors. The study was carried out with   49 students (29 females, 20 males). The students were administered a form that included incomplete sentences such as “Social Studies course is like... because...”, “Social Studies teacher is like...because...” and “BILSEM is like...because...”. The collected data were analyzed using content analysis methods. Results show that gifted students who are enrolled in BILSEM have positive attitudes towards the concepts of Social Studies course, Social Studies teacher, and BILSEM.
