The Care and Feeding of Gifted Students
Join us for an interactive workshop designed for teachers who want to know more about how gifted students are identified, what makes a child ‘gifted’ and the impact of advanced aptitudes on a child’s development and function. We will also discuss how these children may present in class, what to watch for, and things to keep in mind when planning for a classroom that includes gifted children.
We will practice using rating scales, consider a lesson or unit that could be flexible for gifted children, and create a basic choice menu. Bring a lesson or unit (or have one in mind!) you’d like to consider.
Continuing Education Credit
We will provide continuing education certificates at the end of the Institute that will detail the work you undertook with your colleagues in each workshop.
