Ideal for Gifted & Talented Students

I work exclusively with gifted and talented students who are often accelerated in math. I have several who don’t like to ask for help or admit that they don’t know everything. However, they are often happy to report a ‘mistake’ in the cryptogram because they believe that two questions have the same answer or that the decoded message has a spelling error. These reports are a great non-threatening way to identify students who need a little extra help while the students are working on the cryptogram rather than waiting until after they complete a worksheet, and it is graded.
