Homeschooling Your Gifted Child

Saturday, November 11
3:45 PM - 4:45 PM
Location: 203 A

According to a recent report by the U.S. Department of Education, approximately 1.77 million students are homeschooled. For our brightest students, homeschooling may provide an excellent alternative to traditional schooling. Homeschooling a gifted child can be highly challenging, but ultimately beneficial. Hear from a parent who homeschooled her child from Kindergarten through high school, and from her 18-year-old daughter, now a PhD student in Educational Psychology. In this interactive session, presenters share their perspectives and advice about the pros and cons of homeschooling, dispel myths, and provide a list of resources for attendees.
