This week’s special guest was Mrs. Jo Freitag of Gifted Resources in Australia and author of Sprite’s Site (blog). We discussed the use of De Bono’s Six Action Shoes Program as applied to gifted programs and in particular to Twice-Exceptional children. A full transcript of the chat may be found here.
In this chat, we discussed the issues surrounding the task of finding appropriate reading material for gifted children. Questions prompted participants to consider bibliotherapy and how reading selections can promote intellectual development and higher order thinking skills. A full transcript can be found here.
