Although a bit long, this webinar is worth listening to for anyone who works with gifted children. The speaker begins around 9:44 and speaks, in depth, about the characteristics and considerations of the social, emotional and intellectual development of gifted children.
Gifted students need to understand what it means to be gifted and deserve to be empowered with information about how to navigate the world as a gifted child. These lessons are an excellent way to do this.
I appreciated how the author presented the social emotional development of gifted children within the context of their academic development, as the three go hand-in-hand. Each strategy provides a strong rationale for supporting specific areas of social and emotional growth of gifted learners.
A quick resource consisting of important tips for promoting the development of social skills in gifted children. I found the tips related to teaching perspective especially helpful, as gifted students often need support with processing their own feelings and actions, and the reactions of others.
I found this to be an easy-to-read resource that outlines strengths of gifted children and the possible negative implications, or problems associated with the unique strengths. I particularly liked how potentially negative problems are described in separate paragraphs.
I love how comprehensive this resource is and the Special Considerations paragraph is a very helpful read! This resource also identifies possible behavior concerns associated with specific characteristics of gifted and high ability students.
