I ran across the article, “My view: Ten myths about gifted students and programs for gifted,” by Carolyn Coil that was posted in the CNN “Schools of Thought” section. As a teacher of gifted students, myths 5 and 7 hit very close to home. In fact, I have heard all of these statements at least once during my 23 years of teaching. I’m not sure this article would change the mind of any one who is not in the “choir” to which Mrs. Coil is preaching, but it is good to see my own beliefs about gifted students summarized so succinctly.
