GERRIC: Module 4 ~ Understanding Gifted Underachievement (Contact Hours = 4)

Current Status

Get Started

Have you ever wondered, as a teacher, “I was told that child is gifted, but I sure don’t see it!”?  In this module, we will explore six “types” of gifted students: the “successful”, the “underground”, the “challenging”, the “dropout”, the “twice-exceptional”, the “autonomous learner”.  We will identify the factors that contribute to gifted underachievement in five of these six types.  After identifying these factors, we will see some strategies that can help to reverse some aspects of gifted underachievement.

At the completion of each module, you will receive a certificate for that module’s contact hours. As in all of these GERRIC Modules, the directions for the Module appear on a single lesson page.  Please scroll down to find the lesson; then, follow the directions on the lesson page to access this module’s content, take the quiz, and receive your certificate!  (Please note that these online modules, adapted for online use by Erica Baer, are intended only for districts contracted for her gifted services.)
