Solving Underachievement: Eleven Steps to Strengthening Tenacity, Resilience, and Mental Perseverance

Saturday, November 11
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Location: 207 D

Underachievement profoundly affects gifted students, their performance in school, and opportunities in life. Presenters discuss the importance of helping students to develop goal-oriented attitudes and to consider the positive role of productive failure. Recent research in grit, growth mindset, and tenacity have much to teach us in gifted education about the roles they play in the lives of students. Presenters discuss the importance of developing these habits. Participants learn the role of long-term goals, motivation, enjoyment, self-confidence, and competence in creating a successful student and adult.
