Gifted Students and Risk Taking
As a private math teacher for very gifted children I come along the same issue everyday where almost all of my learners struggle with risk taking and failure. It seems as if they are walking a high tight rope of maintaining their label of HG, PG, or EG; only tasks that are within their comfort zone.
The folks from Championship Newsletter do a nice job of remixing information of Carol Dweck’s brilliant work on mindset. I recommend that all people learn as much from Carol Dweck as possible. It is a key for all of us, not just the very gifted.
