ABCs of Being Smart... G Is for Gifted!
Foster, Joanne
Parenting for High Potential, v1 n8 p12-13 Jul 2012
Giftedness can generate speculation, misconceptions, expectations, pride, innuendo, apprehension, puzzlement--and the list goes on. What does it mean to be a gifted learner? In this installment of the series "ABCs of Being Smart," the author grapples with the term gifted, giving a glimpse into giftedness, along with some general guidelines for children's optimal growth (whether one is formally identified as a gifted learner or not). She hopes readers think about these G words, and use them as springboards to gain further understanding about gifted-related matters.
