Supporting underachieving gifted students is our encore podcast this week with the fabulous expert/author Todd Stanley. This group, as well as high achieving students in general, can be quite adept at playing the school game…getting the work in the bin. Employers today, however, are not looking for kids who can simply jump through hoops. Innovative thinking, leadership, the ability to work well within a team, and problem solving skills – that’s what’s in demand.

Science educators: Consider Ann Kaiser’s contributions such as “Engineering a Board Game” and “Innovative NGSS Projects.” Lots of educators have also partaken of her free download on “Using the Engineering Design Process in Your Classroom.”

Angela Stockman‘s work is just so amazing! Her “Idea Generator” and “Firestarters” are super. Personally love her deeper dive on strategies to get even the most resistant writer moving.
