TUES 11/14 @ 6:30pm | Drawing Out Potential: Kids & Underachievement

It’s a common misconception that ‘gifted’ equates to high achievement. Without sustained access to appropriate learning, highly capable kids who don’t experience challenge may coast to “get by,” develop habits that mask their abilities, tune out, act out, or even drop out. What’s the impact when kids disengage or fly under the radar? Is underachievement a ‘phase’ or reason to address a possibly enduring pattern? Join St. Croix Valley Gifted for a conversation that peels away at factors...

TUES 3/28 at 6:30pm | Giving Secondary Thought: A Community MakerSpace

Do parents and educators give sufficient thought to what GT learners face on their journey through secondary? Time doesn’t slow down as students reach the secondary classroom. Projects, deadlines, extra-curriculars, social life, course requirements, and testing new interests or ideas. How do you find the formula for learning and growth in grades 6 – 12? Now add GT into the mix. Perfectionism. Underachievement. Trouble finding challenge and engagement… or people who relate. Masking ability to gain social acceptance. Making...

THURS 2/2 at 6:30pm | Communicating Care & Connection: Parenting Supports & Gifted Youth

SENG Model Parent Groups (SMPG) bring individuals and families together to discuss the challenges associated with raising a gifted child. The co-facilitators of these groups, though knowledgeable about parenting and gifted education, do not attempt to give advice. Instead, their facilitation provides a non-judgmental and nurturing atmosphere for individuals and families to exchange ideas. The SMPG model builds on A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children by James T. Webb, PhD., Arlene DeVries, M.S.E., Janet Gore, M.Ed. and Ed Amend, Psy.D....
