James is a ninth grade student who was identified as gifted in elementary school. He also has ADHD and takes medication to help control it. He loves learning languages and has taken Spanish since sixth grade. He is now in an Advanced Spanish course online because his high school does not offer foreign languages to Freshmen. This is the first time he has taken a course online and he finds himself struggling with it, even though he has always done well in his Spanish classes from middle school. He is really having a hard time with the concepts and starts to think he is not as good at Spanish as he thought. The homework starts to feel insurmountable and he often finds himself quitting before finishing. He doesn't know why he gets the questions wrong and his test scores are also low. The course is set up to rely heavily on the textbook and the textbook assignments. Sometimes the instructor has provided a supplementary explanation, which James finds very helpful. All of the tests are from the textbook company with some contextual information but not much.
