What does it mean to be a gifted person? We will explore two great books and some TED Talks by some brilliant kids. Studying the qualities and characteristics we see in those young people, we will connect those with what we learn about gifted characteristics. Then you will research and create your own TED talks using online video technology, based on a message that you would like to share with the world. What do you care about? What ideas do you have about giftedness? You’ll create your own "TED Talk" about an idea that you have that could make a difference.
Books we will use are:
*1: How Many People Does It Take to Make a Difference?
By Dan Zadra, Kobi Yamada
*2: Living Gifted: 52 Tips to Survive and Thrive in Giftedland
by Lisa Van Gemert
