In past book studies, we have concentrated on methods... but we're headed for something completely different this Summer! When Gifted Kids Don't Have All the Answers: How to Meet Their Social & Emotional Needs discusses the effective side of gifted education. The study includes the topics of twice exceptional ("2e") students, perfectionism and underachievement. This study contains practical strategies for you to maintain a gifted-friendly classroom. To write this book, the authors used classroom experiences, survey data, current research and contributions from teachers and students.

This book study affords you the comfort of your own space, in your own time, with no substitute plans to prepare. Plus, earn 15 hours toward your gifted hours! Invite a colleague to read and complete the study together!

In this book study, there are eight reading assignments with choices of response-prompts, which you will post in Google Classroom so others in the study can comment or ask questions. Google Classroom access information will be share following registration by the course facilitator.

One hour of college credit is available through Ashland University; a one to two-page reflection on the book is required to received credit. Contact Kris Dobbelaere ([email protected]) for more details. 

This PD meets core competencies outlined in Ohio's Operating Standards for Gifted Education.

15 Contact Hours Available.
