A few years ago, some of my fellow teachers and I started exchanging the link to this video because we thought it would be a great inspiration to our students. So many gifted students get used to putting in minimal effort – because much of the time that is all that was required to do well when they were younger. As they get older, it becomes harder and harder to motivate them to go “above and beyond.” This video, from Simple Truths, might show them why the effort might be worth it.
