The Power of Self-Advocacy for Gifted Learners: Teaching the 4 Essential Steps to Success
Gifted learners are full of potential, but sometimes they’re also frustrated, bored, and even disruptive in class. Many bright students struggle because they have never been taught how to ask for what they really need to improve their school experience.
This research-based guide shows educators how to teach self-advocacy skills to gifted students in four essential steps. Gifted students will:
- -Understand their rights and responsibilities
- -Develop their learner profiles
- -Investigate available options and opportunities
- -Connect with advocates
These simple yet comprehensive strategies are brought to life in triumphant true student stories. Also included are a facilitator’s guide with complete instructions for conducting a day-long self-advocacy workshop with gifted students.
Digital content includes the workshop facilitator’s guide, a PDF presentation for use in workshops, pre- and post-workshop student surveys, and customizable forms.
