A Parent's Guide to Encouraging Talent in the Humanities
MacFarlane, Bronwyn
Parenting for High Potential, v1 n8 p4-9 Jul 2012
A recent issue of "Educational Leadership" highlighted the lack of current focus in schools on humanities education (Ferrero, 2011). As the young lives of gifted children become ever busier with extracurricular options, parents are left with the question of how to best complement their child's academic life with his or her social and emotional development. The answer lies within the realm of the humanities. Parents can provide home-based learning experiences with a repertoire of liberal arts for developing young humanitarians with social and emotional competence. An easy-to-use reference chart with a diverse set of ideas for families to select activities is provided in this article to further the suggestions discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
