Besondere Begabungen lassen sich nicht unbedingt an Schulleistungen festmachen. Was aber tun, wenn besondere Begabung nicht in entsprechende Leistung umgesetzt wird bzw. umgesetzt werden kann? Am Internationalen Centrum für Begabungsforschung (ICBF) wurde 2011 ein Motivations- und Selbststeuerungstraining für besonders begabte Schüler mit Lern- und Leistungsschwierigkeiten (Underachiever) als außerschulische Einzelförderung entwickelt. Da der Bedarf an Motivations- und Selbststeuerungsförderung hoch ist, entstand darauf aufbauend dieses Promotionsprojekt mit dem Ziel, mehr Schüler mit dem Training zu erreichen und es an den schulischen Kontext zu koppeln. Unter der Fragestellung 'Welche Wirkung erzielt ein Motivations- und Selbststeuerungstraining für besonders begabte Underachiever, wenn es in Kleingruppen im schulischen Kontext durchgeführt wird?' wurde die Interventionsmaßnahme evaluiert. Anne Vohrmann, Jahrgang 1986, Lehramtsstudium an der Universität Münster, Bachelor of Arts 2009, Master of Education sowie erstes Staatsexamen 2012.
