Educator Seminar

Gifted students. Who, what, how? 

June 17, 2024

Face to Face

Presented by Dr. Susan Nikakis & Laura Wilcox

Gifted students: who are they? Why do they need support? How do I teach them? What resources can I use to help the teaching and learning process? Once your school has identified gifted or highly able students, it’s often a challenge to find appropriate ways to support them in their learning. This seminar will address two major issues: what we as teachers can do in the classroom, and what we can do as a school. The first half of the seminar will provide ideas for classroom tasks and differentiation, and how to ensure that our gifted students remain engaged in their learning. The second half will outline school-wide steps for enrichment and extension, such as the creation of dedicated extension programs, opportunities for external competitions, etc. This is also an opportunity to network and share ideas informally with others, and with VAGTC experts.

A refreshement tea break will be provided.
