Gifted Book Study - The Disintegrating Student: Struggling but Smart, Falling Apart, How to Turn it Around

Event Date: 3/31/2023
Location: Faciliated via Google Classroom

Registration Details:
The truth is that many smart students are reaching a point where they feel overwhelmed and stressed out. As their grades drop, so does their self-esteem, and this combination of external and internal pressures can seem insurmountable. To make matters worse, students feel unable to ask for or accept help. In The Disintegrating Student, Jeannine Jannot, Ph.D. draws on her decades of experience as a school psychologist, educator, and student coach to explain the reasons for this increasingly common phenomenon. Dr. Jannot identifies the skill deficits and counterproductive behaviors of disintegrating students, and provides a complete toolbox of techniques and strategies to combat them.

Taken from a review from Amazon...
"Dr. Jannot has highlighted exactly what I see as an AP Psychology Teacher - students are “disintegrating” under the pressures that are being placed on them. While many are able to develop coping skills and effectively manage these pressures, there are too many that just give up. Dr. Jannot’s work is eye-opening and resourceful not only for students and their parents, but also for their teachers. At the end of the book are Dr. Jannot’s “77 Tips to be Productive and Well”. These tips alone make this book an essential read for all students. I honestly cannot wait to incorporate them in my classroom!"
