Defying popular myths that assume most gifted people are wealthy, white, and will do fine on their own, THE G WORD reveals the economic, cultural, and gender diversity of our nation’s gifted and talented population at every stage of life, highlighting their educational challenges, social isolation, deep emotional sensitivities, and complex, neurodiverse brains. It puts a face to the physical threats experienced by many in our schools and society-at-large, while also revealing a large and lively community of people working hard to meet their needs while challenging the prejudice and trauma that comes with being labeled “smart” in the 21st century.
THE G WORD is framed by a very specific and urgent inquiry — “In the 21st century, who gets to be gifted in America and why?” Searching for an answer, we take an unexpected path into places and spaces across our great nation that warrant reconsidering. We visit rural, urban and suburban schools, the homes and private lives of gifted families, low-income neighborhoods, even the border with Mexico. We meet brain scientists, educators, and experts across a host of disciplines who help us understand that gifted people reside in all walks of life — including in our prisons. We learn that giftedness often sits right alongside disability as in the case of the growing numbers of twice-exceptional (2e) people. We uncover that the social and emotional challenges being faced by our nation's gifted are actually quite common across school systems — public, private, charter, microschool, and homeschool. And, we learn that all of this did not happen overnight. Decades of back story are visualized through animations and archival materials to help us understand how we arrived in this moment — a moment when a surprising number of American families are simply opting out of traditional school entirely.
