The Gifted Student: Rising to the Challenge


The squeaky wheel gets the oil, right? The student who struggles, who asks a thousand questions in a week, who attends extra help, who needs your extra attention, usually gets it. It’s in our nature, as educators, to do whatever we can to help those students who need – and seek – it most. And sometimes we take for granted the strong student, assuming he/she is moving along swimmingly and needs little, if any, attention or motivation. One of the many challenges a teacher faces is trying to reach every student and ensure each receives equal focus.Teachers enrolled in this course will explore various methods for not only reaching the gifted, intrinsically motivated student, but pushing that student to be even better. This course is applicable to all educators, guidance counselors/social workers/psychologists, administrators, and any related service providers of all subjects, grades K-12.
