How to Talk About Giftedness - PART 4
In parts 3 and 4 of this series, we have given you tips on debunking common myths that surround giftedness. When you turn the myths around, you have the Gifted Child’s Bill of Rights -
Gifted children, you have a right to -
- know about your giftedness.
- learn something new every day.
- be passionate about your talent area without apologies.
- have an identity beyond your talent area.
- feel good about your accomplishments.
- make mistakes.
- seek guidance in the development of your talent.
- have multiple peer groups and a variety of friends.
- choose which of your talent areas you wish to pursue.
- not to be gifted at everything.
The Gifted Child’s Bill of Rights was created by Del Siegle, NAGC president (2007-2009).
