Some of the brightest children underachieve in school for a variety of reasons. Children need informed counselors, teachers, and parents who can help them overcome social, emotional, and Psychological challenges involved in growing up.
Gifted and talented children have unique learning needs that set them apart from their peers. These learners benefit most when They Are taught by teachers trained to support them. Invest in preservice training and effective professional learning.
GIFTED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN KNOW MORE THAN 50 PERCENT OF School Year MATERIAL ON THE FIRST DAY OF Class. IMAGINE HOW FRUSTRATING IT IS TO SIT THROUGH CONTENT YOU ALREADY KNOW.
The National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) organized the Giftedness Knows No Boundaries Campaign. National education organizations and individuals interested in promoting equity and excellence in our Nation's homes, schools, and communities can support the campaign by actively promoting and sharing key information about the nature and needs of gifted children amongst others in their networks. The Campaign begins with awareness building about children with gifts and talents and will grow into a movement to improve policies and practices that create supportive environments where these children can thrive.
