In many respects, the ‘gifted brain’ resembles an active volcano on the verge of eruption: swirling, chaotic and yearning for release. Stemming the Flow … explores the neuroscience that fuels everything educators admire about the gifted and talented yet tends to wreak emotional havoc. In an effort to facilitate focus, confidence and competence, this presentation explores the arts as a whole and disaggregated by artistic discipline and defines their specific roles—individually and in concert—in stemming the flow of cognitive lava. Resources and recommendations are disaggregated by grade level and unique attention is paid to special populations within the gifted community, including twice exceptional pupils and those who are diverse linguistically and socioeconomically.
