Five Myths About Gifted Learners

It's not what you think!

Myth 1: Gifted learners are so smart they don't need help

Just because a learner is gifted in one area does not mean they are gifted in all.

Myth 2: Gifted students are good role models for other students and can provide a challenge for them in a regular classroom.

Children model behaviors so they can succeed. Some of the gifted learners may be too advanced leaving an average learner feeling inadequate.
