Zoom Session G/T 6 hour update - Strategies to Address the Social Emotional Needs of Gifted Learners

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 know that gifted students have unique learning needs, but the new TTESS domains and emerging focus  on the social emotional needs of students  are giving educators a chance to really take these dynamics out and look at how they affect the learners in our care. 

How do you tease out the quirks? How do you reign in overexcitibilities and nurture them into strengths? How do you respect but manage the emotional intensities of your gifted students? What does asynchronous mean, and how do we address it in the classroom? How can a student be both gifted and have a learning disability or mental health challenge? How do we address all of those unique needs in ONE classroom?! And what classroom management strategies will create an environment that works for all kids?

Join us for a day of  learning about your gifted students social emotional needs and brainstorming strategies that help you foster their growth and the fulfillment of their potential ---all while managing a mixed ability classroom.

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