Abstract

The current study aimed to identify the degree of prevalence of social responsibility patterns among gifted students in Cairo city schools during the second semester of the academic year (2019/2020), The study sample consisted of (196) male and female students from grades eight and ten who obtained an average of 90% or more. The number of females was (102) students, while the number of males reached (94) students. The researchers developed and applied the social responsibility scale in its three patterns (self, family and social) after verifying its validity and reliability. The results of the study indicated that the degree of prevalence of social responsibility patterns among gifted students was high and arranged in descending order, the family responsibility pattern came in the first order with a high degree, followed by the social responsibility pattern with a high degree, then self-responsibility pattern in the last order, with a high degree, and the average of the social responsibility scale as a whole was with a high degree. The results of the study also showed that the differences between the answers of the study sample individuals about the grade variable were not statistically significant in both family and self-patterns. Whereas there were statistically significant differences in the “social responsibility” pattern, and the differences were in favor of the “tenth grade” group. The results also showed that the differences between the responses of the study sample members about the " gender" variable were not statistically significant in the" family responsibility" pattern, while there were statistically significant differences in the "social responsibility " pattern and the "self-responsibility” pattern in favor of male category. Considering the findings of the study, the researchers recommended working on adopting the various gifted students' initiatives directed at community work and that seek to enhance social responsibility.
