Giftedness can appear in any kind of skill or activity.
Many of the gifted individuals were self-motivated in their gifted area when they were given the freedom to explore.
I wonder why it looked like some of these gifted individuals sped through their academic careers, but didn't have as spectacular careers afterwards.
I wonder if we are looking at as many girls as we are boys in gifted programs.
When children are gifted in non-academic areas, how can we challenge them in academic courses? Gifted in music/sports/art for example, and in my language arts class.
