PRECON2: (Additional Fee Required) Empowering Gifted Students' Self­ Advocacy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
(Additional Fee Required) Learn the why, how, what, and when of helping gifted students take charge of their own educations. While everything that affects gifted programming - laws, funding, initiatives, curriculum, instruction, administrators, teacher education, etc - is often in flux, we can help each gifted learner find their own most appropriate, intentional, steady path toward graduation and beyond.

We'll take a look at what the students themselves have to say about their needs and desire to find a unique route to graduation and beyond.  And if you’re interested in facilitating your own GT Carpe Diem self-advocacy workshop, you'll discover the information, insights, and tools you need. You may even learn more about your own learner profile as we try out some of the student activities.


Participant Outcomes:
  • Understand the rights and responsibilities of gifted students
  • Learn how to assess the five areas of a learner profile
  • Recognize student characteristics that match specific programming options
  • Consider how all stakeholders in the district can play a role in students' self­-advocacy
  • Successfully plan and facilitate a workshop for gifted students
  • Learn to modify the workshop activities for other instructional models
