Thurs 1/14 CHAT | Recognize and Reverse Underachievement in Gifted Learners
What conditions put gifted learners at risk for underachievement? What factors cause them to tune out, disengage, or lose direction entirely? How can adults recognize the signs and intervene in meaningful ways?
Underachievement is an all-too-frequent dynamic among gifted learners, especially as they reach the middle school and high school years. St. Croix Valley Gifted invites educators and parents to our next chapter meeting, an MCGT CHAT night discussion. – event flyer (.pdf) / BW
Topic | Recognize and Reverse Underachievement in Gifted Learners
When | Thursday 1/14, 6:30 – 8:30pm
Where | Stillwater Junior High Media Center, 523 Marsh St. W, Stillwater, MN
How can parents and teachers recognize the signals and work with students to successfully turn the tide? We’re bringing community expertise together to share the research, identify options for intervention, and discuss one of the most challenging facets of giftedness.
Our guest facilitator is chapter board member Sarah Stivland, a parent of two high-school students, and a gifted advocate completing degree work in gifted education. Sarah also was a recent attendee at the 2015 NAGC Annual Conference in Phoenix, AZ, and will contribute relevant expert insights to the CHAT conversation.
