Overview

Motivating gifted students can present a challenge for any teacher. This book is packed with strategies and helpful tips to help you motivate your gifted learners. The authors offer specific ideas for making sure that the gifted children in your classroom stay engaged and excited about learning.

Although gifted students are not normally considered at risk for academic failure, the seeming lack of motivation of many academically gifted students is a continuing area of concern and frustration for many teachers, parents, and counselors. Del Siegle and D. Betsy McCoach explore crucial issues such as why some students who seem capable of outstanding performance fail to realize their potential and what causes some gifted students to be more motivated than others.
