KAGE FALL WORKSHOP 2019, Monday, September 23, 2019

CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT WITH GIFTED STUDENTS

This workshop will focus on helping classroom teachers successfully meet the needs of gifted students while maintaining a positive learning atmosphere for all. We will explore recognizing intensities in gifted students and best practices for managing the learning environment to support student needs and minimize disruptions. We will also discuss best practices for classroom management in a differentiated classroom. Ideas such as grouping, individual contracts, parallel curriculum, and centers will be investigated through the lens of how to keep the classroom running smoothly. Participants will leave with a toolkit of ideas to improve the learning environment for all students and excitement to venture into new ways of teaching.
