At NAGC, I experienced Dr. Joseph Renzulli’s whirlwind tour through the concept of social capital and its importance for gifted students. Gifted students will become leaders, how can we help them become leaders who benefit society.
At NAGC2010, I attended a session about social and emotional focused on self-evaluation or “sharpening the saw.” Rather than simply offering vague recommendations for students to “get in touch with their emotions,” Tim Gott introduced a very practical pathway to assist children in assessing their own emotions.
My first post from NAGC 2010. A high-caliber panel of scientists discusses the importance of curiosity for our gifted students.
