Ugly, fat, dumb, weak, slow: these are the types of negative labels students can spend a lifetime trying to overcome. But what about the positive labels like gifted, talented, smart, or funny? Those can have negative side effects as well.

The Creation Stations: Engaging the Primary G/T Learner course will teach you strategies to help your gifted students begin to transcend both good and bad labels through newly taught creative thinking skills.
