10 Myths about Gifted Education

May 14, 2011

Here is a wonderful video created by gifted students Mythbusting some of the common myths about gifted and talented programs.  I encourage you to watch it and pass it on!

If the video doesn’t display in your email, click “Read More of this Post” to view on the website.

Hat-tip to Alex “Sandy” Antunes at Science 2.0.  More from Alex in the complete post…

Another couple of great columns by Alex are When Smart Kids Fail and Myths of Gifted Education.  Alex also linked to an article with tips on motivating underachievers for teachers and parents.  Many of us know that gifted students left unchallenged can soon become underachievers.  Some become afraid to take risks because they feel trying something and failing will show that they aren’t as gifted or smart as people believe.  And so the gift becomes a curse.  It is our job as parents and advocates to make sure this doesn’t happen.

Together we can make a difference for gifted students!
