What’s a parent to do with an unhappy intellectually gifted child? — The Unhappy Intellectually Gifted Child | Psychology Today https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/how-do-life/201604/the-unhappy-intellectually-gifted-child …
“Amid all our efforts to help low-achieving kids, we shouldn't deprive intellectually gifted kids of their right to an appropriate education. After all, they'll be the people most likely to cure cancer, create the next Google, and wisely lead our world.”
"... we cannot and will not adequately meet diversity goals in gifted education with the same old system." Kathleen Casper discusses strategies to identify and serve all #gifted children in this article from the #SENG resource library: http://ow.ly/BWWm30mxNMI
“Gifted education is for those with special needs. It is not elite. It is not giving them advantages. It is giving them what they need, just as all students should have their needs met in school.”
Happy 2019 WOE families! Just a friendly reminder that our parent book club information meeting will be tomorrow (Thursday) at 5 and Friday morning at 8:15 in room 3321. I hope to see you there!
“The misconception can mask giftedness.” — Is there a mindset misconception with giftedness? | The Thomas B. Fordham Institute https://edexcellence.net/articles/is-there-a-mindset-misconception-with-giftedness …
Interesting article on giftedness and mindsets, “If anything, these findings affirm that gifted students need to be appropriately challenged so that they experience productive struggle in the learning process.”
Parents, be on the look out for this flyer in your child’s Friday folder. We will be organizing WOE’s first parent book club.

“What causes overthinking? (And what can you do about it?)” — Gifted Challenges: Gifted overthinkers: What makes them tick? https://giftedchallenges.blogspot.com/2017/05/gifted-overthinkers-what-makes-them-tick.html …
This article gives a lot of insight into overthinking, “When gifted overthinkers unburden themselves from anxiety, shame and uncertainty, thinking can resume its role as a source of joy and creativity.”
Shame and fear can be hidden drivers of perfectionism— which carries a host of negative consequences http://bit.ly/2PyOGwI
“When our worth and value are tied to our achievements, we set ourselves up for disappointment. “
