Genius in Residence.
Grost, Audrey
The author recounts the family and school life of an exceptionally gifted child - her son, Michael Grost - from birth to his graduation from Michigan State University at the age of 15 years. She has chronicled the development of Mike (IQ 200+) with many humorous, frustrating, desparing, triumphant, and incredible personal experiences of Mike and the family as they struggled toward the fullest development of his talents. Encounters with the rigid school system, jealous neighbors, inflexible members of the educational community, and finally compassionate educators and psychologists at Michigan State University are described. Beyond the story of one gifted child, the author raises questions related to current teaching methods and the educational system, the conflict of the pursuit of equal opportunities and the pursuit of excellence, and how to nurture and develop to the fullest talent and genius in the individual child.
