            So, You're Gifted...A Web Quest of Self-Discovery


So, You're Gifted.....  Now What?

Just as there are many reactions to the term 'Gifted', there are many types of gifted people.

You've been identified "gifted" at school.  Sometimes this label comes with a sense of relief and pride that finally people understand the real you.   Sometimes, however, the label comes with a sense of guilt and frustration.  Now everyone seems to expect perfection and high standards and you feel like you are constantly being measured. Read an amusing poem about being deemed gifted.

Giftedness has its pros and cons.  It can mean that you do some things more easily than other kids your age.  It also can mean that you sometimes understand things better than many adults!  It also means that in some areas, you are average or even lower than average.  That's normal.

People are unique.  Everyone has strengths and weaknesses.  Gifted kids are sometimes targets for expecting perfection, in school and in their personal lives.  It's not possible to be perfect!

What makes you unique?  What are your strengths?  What are your weaknesses?

In this Web Quest, you will learn a great deal about what makes you tick.  Usually teachers don't encourage students to compare themselves to others, but in this case, comparison with others will help to create a mosaic of unique personal strengths to create a phenomenal group.
