What is a durable person? What traits do successful people exhibit? What is a perfectionist? These questions and many others are explored in this practical guide to helping gifted students navigate social and emotional issues in their lives. This curriculum is designed to help gifted children explore their own giftedness, expand social skills, cultivate leadership skills, and develop strategies for combatting stress, anger, and perfectionism. Gifted children must be taught to be durable so they can continue to be responsible and productive citizens.

Topics covered in Learning to be a Durable Person include:
  • Being gifted means different things to different people,
  • Successful people exhibit the traits of creativity, goal setting, intelligence, courage and kindness,
  • A person who chooses a career based on his or her intelligences may be more productive and satisfied in his or her career,
  • Understanding why people tease others may allow you to choose how to deal with teasing, and
  • No one is perfect.
