Feedback form is now closed.
In this interactive lecture/discussion, participants will learn how classroom teachers can subject-accelerate students with gifts and talents within a personalized learning framework.

Implementation can be done within the classroom and it is more than simply differentiation. Heather will share her experiences - - the good, the bad and the ugly - - and support others as they investigate
personalized learning through a GT lens.

Participants will leave:
  • Knowing the difference between differentiation and personalized learning. 
  • Seeing the benefits of personalizing the classroom to meet the needs of all learners, including those with gifts and talents
  • With concrete examples of personalized learning
  • Able to identify entry points within any curriculum
