ZOOM Session - G/T 6 hour update: Embracing the Emotional Intensity of G/T Students

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:

Gifted students have an innate capacity for experiencing the world and responding to it with higher levels of intensity than their non-gifted peers.  Consequently, their reactions and behaviors are often seen as inappropriate in a world where appropriate means being "just like everyone else."  But gifted students are not like everyone else--not only in terms of their intellectual ability but also in terms of their over-excitability.  

Embracing the Intensity of Gifted/Talented Students provides insights into over-excitability in all of its forms--psychomotor, sensual, intellectual, imaginational, and emotional--with an eye toward seeing the intensity that so often drives gifted students as an asset that's fundamental to "the gift," one that should be embraced rather than squashed.

This session will be a Zoom session from 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM. There will be a product component that will be submitted to complete your 6 hour credit. You will be receiving a Zoom Pre-Registration Link. Please fill out with your District E-mail.
