The talents of some of our most brilliant kids may never be recognized because these children fall into a group known as twice exceptional, or "2e". These kids are both gifted and diagnosed with a disability—often ADHD or an Autism Spectrum Disorder—leading teachers and parents to overlook the child's talents and focus solely on weaknesses. This book sheds light on this vibrant population, identifying who twice exceptional children are and taking an unflinching look at why they're stuck.
Our principal kicked off our faculty meeting at the beginning of the school year by sharing the book ‘What Great Teachers Do Differently’ by Todd Whitaker. He underlined a portion of the book and wrote in the margins how it applied to a teacher in our school. It was then that teacher’s job to read it over the following two weeks, annotate a section that applied to a great teacher of her choosing and pass it on. We share these at each meeting.
