It's Not all Rainbows and Unicorns: Why Being Gifted isn't always a Gift
Blended Learning




Giftedness is about more than simply being "really smart" or prodigiously creative; it is having an alternative way of thinking that comes with a unique set of intellectual and interpersonal skills, as well as some other challenges. While the term suggests an advantage, being exceptionally bright can feel like a burden to some. In this session we will discuss the "downside" to being gifted and how teachers can support their students who struggle with certain aspects of giftedness. This session is an asynchronous opportunity to learn at your own pace, whenever, wherever! Content will be shared via Google Site and an application of learning and reflection will be submitted for credit.
