TIP-ical Kids: Social and Emotional Aspects of High Ability Children and Youth
Thirty years of working with gifted students in Duke TIP summer programs has provided evidence of the nature of the characteristics of gifted/talented students. While individual differences (and exceptions to the rule) abound, there are strong tendencies among gifted kids regarding their social and emotional development that can inform parents and teachers, helping them to understand the response they receive from their children and students. Awareness of these characteristics can turn the “rough seas” of interactions in school and in the home into “smooth sailing” for everyone involved.
Dr. Rick Courtright is gifted education research specialist with Duke TIP, having served as an educator for more than thirty-five years in roles of classroom teacher, gifted resource teacher, and district administrator of gifted programs. He has presented at state and national conferences on gifted education, has been a co-director of two summer institutes and three state conferences, and has led workshops and taught university courses for hundreds of teachers acquiring gifted education certification.
