Gifted and Talented

I have a GTE student who has been lackluster for a better word. Finally we talked and their performance was more from lack of motivation because up to this point GTE has meant to them more work not challenging work, appropriate work.
ARGH! Why would anyone think “GTE student? Will give them 50 problems to work instead of 20 like everyone else!”
My heart breaks for this student as well as any and all of the others who have been given more instead of  challenging work.
I certainly will be working on this! And now off to learn gaming so I can be challenged by my GTE student!
