We think of gifted kids as only having academic needs, but - in their own words - they also have many needs of the heart.
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.
How can our students be so different? And how can we help them to understand themselves and each other better.
Why being good at many things can be a bit of a burden.
