August/September Bright Child AZ Book of the Month
The Book of the Month for August and September 2022 is ‘The Power of Self-Advocacy for Gifted Learners’ by Deb Douglas.
About the Book of the Month
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. These simple yet comprehensive strategies are brought to life in triumphant true student stories. Also included is a facilitator’s guide with complete instructions for conducting a day-long self-advocacy workshop with gifted students.
Why We Like It
Many schools in Arizona are using this resource to help our gifted learners learn to advocate for their needs – such a valuable skill as they get older and move into middle school, high school, and beyond! Deb Douglas also has provided this powerful workshop in partnership with AAGT in the past.
