G/T 6 hour update - Teaching for Deeper Learning

The Gifted and Talented program at Education Service Center, Region 20 (ESC-20) promotes and supports the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented students through professional development and technical assistance. This is accomplished by advocating, designing and providing an array of learning experiences for teachers and administrators of gifted and talented students in order to enable them to provide a nurturing environment in which these students with special abilities, unique needs, and diverse backgrounds are recognized.

Important Session Information:

We all aspire to teach for depth.  However, given the number of standards we must address, and the short period of time we’re allotted to address them, we often find ourselves hurrying to “cover the material” rather than taking time to dig deeply into it.  Wouldn’t it be nice if we could do both?  Dr. Eric Jensen’s Deeper Learning Cycle provides a way.

Teaching for Deeper Learning introduces teachers to the Deeper Learning Cycle—a four-stage model of instruction that not only allows teachers to cover the standards but to do so in a way that provides gifted students with the deep and complex learning they crave.  Participants will experience the Deeper Learning Cycle first-hand, working with a specified content and then engaging in a number of processing strategies that easily translate to any classroom. 

This training can take the place of a G/T Day 4 or 5 for the Foundational Hours or a G/T 6 hour update if not previously taken.
