2.10.8 In practice, not just in theory: A developmental approach to supporting social and emotional growth in gifted students

The New Zealand Centre for Gifted Education’s curriculum for gifted learners includes a specific content strand entitled “Personal Development” aimed at supporting gifted students to gain an understanding of what it means to be gifted, building better intra and interpersonal knowledge. Students develop a greater awareness of who they are and what makes them tick and become empowered to take better control of their social and emotional needs. We see amazing social and emotional outcomes for the students we work with and are happy to share our practice with this international community.
