Is Your Young Child Gifted?

Gifted children do not always show their potential early on, but many do and often their parents are completely unprepared for how to handle the little bundle of energy that they are responsible for. Many people think of giftedness as something that implies easy parenting and "straight As" in the classroom. In fact, that is often far from the truth. Gifted children do, indeed, have high potential, but they also come in a complicated package that includes different social and emotional needs in addition to an entirely different way of thinking, in some cases.

"Generally, people don’t expect bullying from adults—yet it does occur and can even come in disguise from a trusted colleague or someone considered a friend. Those who stand out as quirky or different, such as gifted or highly sensitive people, may be more vulnerable than most."

Meet the Biosphere! with GHF Online

This spring, let’s learn about our fellow organisms! In this class, we will discuss the many facets of the diversity of life found on planet Earth. We will look at everything from microorganisms in the soil to elephants and blue whales, polar tundra to tropical rainforests, and bare soil to flourishing ecosystems. Genetics, species interactions, and ecology will be discussed in this biological exploration, as we move from microscopic molecules to continental communities! There will be short weekly assignments based on resources provided, optional projects as follow-ups to each class, and a final project in which students write, show, or present on a topic covered in class.

These days, people claim their decisions are “data driven.” But what does that really mean? After all, data can be used used to say, well, whatever a person wants them to say! Is it true that 96.5% of all statistics are made up? Or, did I just make that up? Given that the average person probably doesn’t know what it means when we talk about averages, and we have a real gap in understanding.statistics

Learning to “talk back to statistics” means you’ll be prepared in a data-driven society to actually understand what the data are saying, and what they aren’t. We’ll look at how data becomes biased in its collection, analysis, representation, and interpretation. We’ll try to figure out what it means to actually be fair. We will do our best to create methods that give the most unbiased results possible, and learn how to manipulate data so that we can catch others when they are doing it!

This class will be heavy in discussion, with accommodations made for students who prefer to take more time to think before responding. We will look at many examples of data in various stages, mostly real, some crafted to demonstrate the issues that can arise. Students will try their hands at the art of data manipulation. Students are NOT expected to have prior knowledge of statistics, as we will learn the content required to understand manipulation alongside the actual manipulation. Students will learn how to collect, analyze, represent, and interpret data, as well as how each of these stages can be done in a way that introduces bias.
