Summer Workshop 2019

Differentiation for All – Applying Fundamentals of Depth and Complexity to Reach and Teach Gifted Students

with Jan Weaver Lanham, PhD

Monday, June 17, 2019


Bowling Green, KY, Western Kentucky University campus – 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Central Time

ABOUT THE PROGRAM: One of the biggest challenges facing teachers is the need to differentiate in order to meet the range of needs within our classrooms. Participants in this session will explore high level questioning, total participation strategies, flexible grouping strategies, fundamentals of independent study, depth and complexity strategies, twice-exceptional and under-represented gifted students, and more. Bring a set of standards and instructional sequence to be taught and leave with differentiated resources that can be applied to that sequence and across other content or topics of instruction. Plan to be actively involved in designing and sharing resources that impact students and strategies that can be shared with peers.

SPECIAL BONUS! As part of KAGE’s 40th birthday celebration, we’d like to give you a present!  Bring a colleague (or two or three) and each one gets a reduced registration rate (see Cost below). Build a professional learning community where you can design and share instructional strategies and practices together.
