Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0
Course participants will develop an understanding of the unique socio-emotional needs of gifted students and the implications of this framework for not only academic but also social success. Participants will examine the myths regarding gifted students and the expectations of teachers, families and the students themselves, along with the pitfalls that are a result of those myths. Finally, participants will apply current research on best practices for working with this unique group to their own teaching situation and explore ways to share this information with their colleagues.
