Three New Professional Learning Opportunities

NAGC is offering three virtual workshops on improving your gifted practices in your class, school, and district.

For Teachers

One-room Schoolhouses 2.0: Differentiating in Today’s Classrooms                                          

Lynette Breedlove, Director, The Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science       
Tracy Inman, NAGC Board of Directors Parent Representative      

Teachers in one-room schoolhouses differentiated daily; they had to. Yet differentiation remains one of the most challenging aspects of teaching today. Tackle that challenge head-on by exploring research-based, practical strategies for both preassessment and differentiation. Leave with tools to differentiate process and content, and by readiness.
