Mentors for Gifted Underachieving Males: Developing Potential and Realizing Promise.
Hebert, Thomas; Olenchak, F. Richard
Gifted Child Quarterly, v44 n3 p196-207 Sum 2000
A study examined the mentorship experiences of three gifted underachieving male adolescents. Findings indicate that open-minded and nonjudgmental characteristics of the mentors were required to sustain an on-going relationship. A plan of strength- and interest-based strategies for intervention to reverse patterns of underachievement was implemented successfully in each case. (Contains extensive references.) (CR)
