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.
About the day:
Start with the keynote: Leaving Genius on the Table: Practical Tools to Unleash the Potential of Underrepresented Populations in Gifted Education by thinkLaw’s Colin Seale and follow it with sessions designed to challenge your thinking regarding providing direction, assistance, and resources to support and enhance performance of students with high potential. Listen, interact, and learn from colleagues. Explore how nurturing potential requires eliminating barriers and boosting opportunities at the district/school levels.
INFORMED DECISION-MAKERS MAKE APPROPRIATE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES HAPPEN FOR GIFTED LEARNERS!
