KAGE 2020 Administrators Institute

KAGE Conference 2020, February 24-25

ADMINISTRATORS INSTITUTE 2020

Monday, February 24, 2020, 8:00 – 3:00 pm (Eastern Time)

INTENDED FOR:  Superintendents, Principals, Assistant Principals, and All Educators Who are Key Decision-Makers in Schools, Districts, and Organizations

PURPOSE: If gifted students from all levels of society are to be nurtured to be college and career ready and to reach their full potential, then key decision-makers must make informed decisions rooted in research-based strategies and best practices in gifted education. All children, including gifted children, need encouragement, and appropriate learning experiences from caring adults in order to make the most of who they are and will become.

Sessions will include:

• (Keynote) Leaving Genius on the Table: Practical Tools to Unleash the Potential of Underrepresented Populations in Gifted Education, Colin Seale – Education equity cannot just be about closing achievement gaps. It must be about shattering achievement ceilings. But when it comes to historically underrepresented groups in gifted education, we systemically fail to recognize the brilliance they bring to our classrooms and struggle to consistently support the success and retention of the disproportionately low numbers of students from these subgroups in gifted programs. This interactive workshop will provide leaders with practical tools and strategies they can implement immediately to unleash the full critical thinking potential of all students, especially English Learners and students in high poverty communities. These tools will help these students reach their full critical thinking potential and increase the enrollment and retention of underrepresented populations in gifted education. Because we cannot afford to keep on leaving genius on the table
