I have decided to accept Lisa Rivero’s challenge to write 30 blog posts for the month of September. I intend to try to add 10 posts to each of my 3 blogs during the month of September. Sprite’s Site will feature posts about posts!

Another type of post found on Sprite’s Site is the Fence Post.

The fence posts are used to build the guard rails that prevent students from falling into the Underachievement area which was discussed in the 26 May 2013 post Gifted Underachievers  https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2013/05/26/gifted-under-achievers/

In the whole student population there are some gifted students, some students with learning difficulties and many students who are underachieving for a whole variety of reasons.

Some of the gifted students also have learning difficulties and many of the gifted and many of those with learning difficulties are underachieving. And some are unfortunate enough to be in that centre group who are gifted with learning difficulties and are underachieving.

When we take a closer look at the Underachieving group we see that there are many possible reasons a student can be underachieving.
Teachers, parents, psychologists, education consultants and therapists need to support and advocate for gifted, 2E and LD students in order to build a guard rail to try to prevent them falling into the Underachievement area.
