Tips and Strategies of the Month
Encourage high ability students to talk about current events. Gifted students tend to keep up with current events and are often curious about the world of politics. Engaging them in conversations about world events will show them how their special talents could be used to address very real problems. Also, be aware that high ability students can often be very disturbed by conflicts in our world events. Be ready to talk with them at an age appropriate level, because they can suffer from intense worry and anxiety.
