Beyond Full Potential: Reconsidering What Success Means for Gifted Children

Potential is a word used frequently when discussing the educational path for gifted children. But what does it really mean? Join Colin Seale, founder of thinkLaw and GiftedNYS Advisory Board Member, on Wednesday, November 3rd, 7:30 pm for his presentation, Beyond Full Potential: Reconsidering What Success Means for Gifted Children.

From Colin:
All parents and educators want their students to be successful. With gifted students, there is often even greater pressure to unleash their "full potential." This webinar will provide powerful yet practical tools to understand the harms of the "full potential" myth and move towards a more healthy, hopeful, and happy path to help gifted children excel.

Afterward, Colin will answer audience questions and raffle off a signed copy of his book, Thinking Like a Lawyer: A Framework for Teaching Critical Thinking to All Students.
