Common Myths of Gifted Education Part 1
In this first of two chats on the Common Myths of Gifted Education, 4 myths were discussed including: 1) All Children are Gifted; 2) Gifted Children Will Do Fine on Their Own; 3) Teachers Challenge All Children in the Regular Classroom; and 4) Gifted Students Are a Role Model for Other Students. A full transcript may be found here.
This topic proved to be especially popular with folks from 26 states and 4 countries joining us. Part 2 of the discussion will take place on Friday, January 17th at 7PM ET/6PM CT.
