Middle school presents a profusion of new challenges for the gifted learner, many completely unrelated to academic rigor. Why do some gifted kids fail to flourish in the middle grades when the schoolwork is well within intellectual reach? The results of a survey of middle school teachers identify specific challenges kids face in the middle grades. Executive Functioning skills are developing, while demands for managing schedules, materials, and details multiply dramatically. You’ll leave this workshop with a greater understanding of the complexity of middle school, and many practical strategies for helping kids grow stronger EF skills.
