Top Myths About Gifted Students…And How to Serve Them
A Conversation with Todd Stanley
There may be more misconceptions about students identified as gifted than any other group. We might be thinking: high achievers who enter med school at fourteen, right? Our guest author, Todd Stanley, helps clarify some myths about this group and differentiates between high achievers and gifted students. Turns out, gifted individuals might need to be on our radars as potentially dropping out of high school. Todd also builds the case for why he believes gifted programs are so essential to students’ development and well-being.
