Academic Term and Year
Gifted students, because of their "special status," may engage in behaviors that put them at risk for not "meeting school expectations," which is the definition of underachievement. They might not have the habits to achieve their own goals, either. Yet other gifted students might not have these challenges, which can confuse their teachers. This course will inform educators about the dynamics of underachievement, including differences that can trigger underachievement in some but not all. It will also teach useful skills and strategies for developing the best supportive relationships with gifted students.
