Gifted students are often viewed as holistically more advanced than their peers; however, it has been recognized that the needs of gifted students are not solely related to academic enrichment, but may also include unique social–emotional development. This presentation will review current research, curriculum implementation, and progress monitoring of social–emotional skills within a gifted resource classroom.
