When Gifted Kids Don't Have All the Answers
By Judy Galbraith & Jim Delisle
As awareness builds, it's more important than ever to make certain we are meeting students' unique social and emotional needs in the classroom and beyond. Gifted learners can struggle with stress, perfectionism, anxiety, and an array of challenges that are frequently connected to giftedness. The struggles of these learners are often unseen or misunderstood. This book/course will serve as tool to explore concepts and strategies that will help you to identify and meet these social and emotional needs. A leading resource in the field of gifted education, this book connects the uniqueness of gifted students to research and practices regarding the non-academic needs that our students bring to classroom.
Participants will examine the world gifted education through the lenses of classroom experience, data, research, and most importantly practical strategies to use.
