We think of gifted kids as only having academic needs, but - in their own words - they also have many needs of the heart.
Why being good at many things can be a bit of a burden.
How can our students be so different? And how can we help them to understand themselves and each other better.
Do you know a student who's a little bit… intense?
Know any kids who, despite their brilliant minds, have a bit of a hard time keeping things in order, turning things in on time, or remembering to put their names on their papers?
In some areas, a student may be shockingly advanced, while in others… surprisingly average. This is asynchrony in action.
Rather than adding more to your plate, think about what you want to stop doing.
