2 - A Toolkit for Teaching Underserved Gifted Learners

Saturday, Nov 17
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Come join us as we share and demonstrate teaching strategies for students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, English language learners, economically disadvantaged students, students from rural areas, and twice-exceptional students. We explore implicit bias and the unique needs of underserved gifted learners; dive into strengths-based teaching strategies; and share ideas for challenging gifted students from underserved populations.
