Eight Greats - Journal Activity

First read the summary of the Eight Great Gripes of Gifted Students on the following webpage: https://mrsstorch.weebly.com/the-eight-great-gripes.html. As you read through the list reported by 400 gifted children back in 1983, think about each statement carefully. Ask yourself: Is this STILL one of the biggest issues about being gifted? Then, respond to the following 2 questions: 1) What are the 8 BEST things about being gifted - the BIG BONUSES? 2) What are the 8 WORST things about being gifted - the GREAT GRIPES? You may respond in one of the the following ways: O You may type your response in a note as a standard journal entry, in complete sentences. O You may pre-write your response and then create a video which completely answers the questions. O You may make 2 separate drawings - one for each question. Please be sure to click the green check in the upper-right corner, and do not leave the site until you see the message "waiting for teacher approval."
