Teacher’s perspective – Rewarding honours students
Three teachers involved in the Dutch Honours Program give their ideas on how to reward talented students.
According to Ron, Elisabeth and Sylvia these special programs for talented students give students the opportunity to develop their talents. Sometimes they can really lose themselves and make these magical things happen. They think further than the regular question, make things personal and gain insight and knowledge by getting to know different perspectives from different disciplines.
These students have a lot of freedom, work with motivated students and they are able to develop their professional identity and so make specific choices for the future.
