Educator Seminar

Who is gifted and why does it matter? Part 1, Seminar Presentation. 

June 5, 2024
16:00 -
17:30

Presented by Amy Horneman

As teachers in mixed-ability classrooms, the question often arises, “How do I know if my student is gifted?” While this is an important question to address, as there are implications on our daily practice if a student is indeed ‘diagnosed’ as ‘gifted’, a deeper question is often not asked or adequately answered: “Why does it matter if my student is gifted?” This session, the first in a 2-part series, will unpack some of the current understandings in the field of gifted education about why it is important to identify giftedness in our classrooms, and the broader purpose of gifted education in our world.
