I love this comic because it sums up a big philosophy I have with teaching gifted students. Just because you receive an "A" on all assignments, doesn't mean you have learned as much as you can. In our class, the 21st century skills of grit, determination, perseverance, and being responsible for your own learning will occur on a weekly, daily, hourly and minute by minute basis. We only get stronger when it's difficult! We can only grow by struggling, so this year, expect a lot of growth!
